Author Notes: This recipe came to me in a different form from my sister who got it from a friend at the University of Essex during her Master's studies. I've adapted it a fair bit in the intervening nine years into the form below. It's my favourite brunch; I make it all the time on holidays and when we're having overnight guests. The apple sauce makes the pancakes take a while to cook, so I recommend frying up two at a time.matthewddsg

Makes 5-7

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
  2. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Mix the yolks into the dry ingredients with the other wet ingredients.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the batter. Hand-beating works best but is time-consuming.
  4. Pour roughly one ladle-full of batter into the center of a pan in a coin of oil over medium-high heat. Flip pancake as bubbles begin to appear around the edges of the cooking pancake. Ladle sizes, temperature, and cooking times vary.

These pancakes are full-on amazing! My boyfriend made them for me one Sunday morning and we were both dying... it's like a warm apple fritter pancake! How could there be anything better?! Thanks for this fab recipe, I'm recommending it on my site as well (hope you don't mind?)

Lovely! Looking forward to trying these, perhaps playing with the flour a bit (subbing some barley, etc.). Thanks for posting this. I hope you post some more recipes, soon! ;o)

These are so fluffy and delicious! I used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and unsweetened applesauce and they are just perfect. Thanks!
