Apple Pancakes with kiwi, strawberries and pears

March 1, 2019Sew White

Apple pancakes topped with kiwi, strawberries and pears is a wonderful way to start the day. This my take on the American stacked pancakes.

There is nothing better than a delicious stack of pancakes with fresh fruit and they happen to make a meal. Pancakes are a fun, easy and quick breakfast to make no matter your age.

To make this delicious breakfast I used a brilliant product from OXO which have become family favourites; the complete grate and slice set . It is a piece of kit I’ve always wanted and it’s really useful. The grate and slice set is so brilliant. It has 4 options, 2 graters and 2 slicers. They come in a fabulous box which means they tidy away neatly and it stops fingers getting cut as the lid clips on. The box base holds a stand for the grater or slicer and when you cut falls into box. It certainly helps this messy puppy make a lot less mess. Safety wise the grater is held in the box so shouldn’t or fall out when it’s being used. I used the large grater for the apple as I want the apple to be noticeable in the pancakes.

Here are the fabulous apple pancake stack. The recipe makes about 20 medium pancakes, perfect for a good stack for 4 people or a super stack for a family of three.

Apple Pancakes


  • 1 Granny smith apple grated
  • 60g melted unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 250ml milk
  • 175 plain flour
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • half a teaspoon of ground ginger
  • tiny pinch of nutmeg if you fancy


  1. Melt the butter on a low heat and remove to cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the butter, egg, milk and grated apple.

  3. In a bowl weigh out the flour, sugar, baking powder and spices.

  4. Sieve in the flour mix to the wet ingredients and whisk until you get a medium thick mix. You don't want it too runny. The mix will not be completely smooth because of the grated apple.

  5. Get a heavy based pan or griddle nice and hot and drop spoonfuls of mix on to get the size you want. You might need a little butter if your pan isn't non stick. My pancakes were about 2 tablespoons of mix each.

  6. After a minute see how brown the pancakes are and if they are starting to brown flip them. If they aren't completely cooked you can flip them back later.

  7. - Put the finished on a warm plate and cover with a clean towel to keep warm while you make more for the stack.
  8. - They are lovely with a drizzle of maple syrup but to make it more special, I would recommend fresh fruit. Especially strawberries, kiwi and pears. The flavours work so well together with the pancakes.

I then went back to the slicer and cut up the strawberries, kiwi and pear to make them more fun than regular chunks. It was nice to have beautifully thin pieces of kiwi. The strawberry was a little soft to slice but I managed to get enough good pieces from 3 strawberries and ate the evidence of the ones which didn’t. For the pear, to add a different texture, I used the julienne slicer. The pear worked so perfectly and the result was so much better than I thought. Even though the pear was ripe it didn’t break and I think it really worked as decoration on top of the pancakes.

    We love pancakes in our house but havent tried apple pancakes before. They look delicious, will definitely be going them a go. Also, I love that the grater lid can help you not to cut your fingers. Genius!

      Thank you. I think they look really good too. I will have to make more as I got so hungry writing them up. The grater with lid is brilliant. I am so bad at cutting myself on graters. It’s nice to know when putting my hand into the cupboard I’m not going to cut myself.

    Yum, I love pancakes! Though my mom isn’t a fan, as she loves crepes. Maybe drizzling pancakes with chocolate and some fruit will change her mind!

    Lovely recipe and ideas, thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚
