Apple Pancakes

source recipe

Completely modified set of ingredients:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup apple sauce
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 medium apples, coarsely grated

  • 2 cups spelt flour (I’m sure all-purpose would work just fine.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Slightly modified instructions:

  1. Mix the eggs, milk, apple sauce and sugar in a large bowl.

  2. Mix the grated apples with the wet ingredients.

  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and stir until just combined, without overmixing.

  5. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet over low to medium heat. Drop large spoonful of batter into the pan and flatten it out a little (otherwise, you might have trouble getting them to cook in the center) and cook until golden brown underneath. Flip the pancakes and cook them for an additional two or three minutes.


  • If the apples are relatively sweet (we had gala), you may want to cut the sugar entirely. That way, there is more opportunity to use maple syrup.
