  • 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


  • 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.
