Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

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

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

In This Recipe
  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.
