Melt the butter on a low heat and remove to cool slightly.
In a large bowl mix together the butter, egg, milk and grated apple.
In a bowl weigh out the flour, sugar, baking powder and spices.
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.
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.
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.
- Put the finished on a warm plate and cover with a clean towel to keep warm while you make more for the stack.
- 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.
