Apple & cinnamon pancakes

Apple & cinnamon pancakes

Pancakes are a favourite weekend breakfast and grating apple into the batter makes for an altogether squidgier proposition. These are inspired by American apple pie, but with a twist – a sprinkling of pul biber chilli flakes.

  • 200g plain flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150ml milk
  • 50g butter, melted, plus extra for frying
  • 3 Jazz Apples, cored and grated
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Greek yogurt, to serve
  • 1 maple syrup, to serve
  • 1 pul biber, to serve


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Add the milk, melted butter and grated apple (plus any juice it yields) and stir until fully incorporated. Mix in the eggs.

  2. Put a large frying pan over a medium heat (or low-medium, if using gas), add a little butter, then dollop in some of the mixture to make 3 pancakes about 10cm in diameter. Add a little more mixture to each pancake to make it slightly thicker and cook for 2 minutes, waiting for bubbles to rise to the surface before pipping each one over carefully.

  3. Cook the pancakes for another minute until cooked through. Remove and repeat until all the batter is cooked. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkling of pul biber.

Cook’s tip

Cooks' Ingredients Pul Biber

These chilli flakes are fruity rather than hot so you can sprinkle them over almost anything – pancakes, eggs, pasta dishes or jacket potatoes.
