Pancakes make a fabulous weekend breakfast and I am always looking for new ways of preparing them. This recipe is for a slightly thick batter, coating apple rings: you get to enjoy a large pile of lovely pancakes whilst really just eating your portion of fruit for the day.
By the way my apple rings look a bit wonky. I must have still been half asleep when I made these pancakes: I sliced up all my apples vertically before realizing that I now had to cut wholes into the slices to make rings….
1 large serving
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ pinch of salt
1 small egg
60 ml buttermilk (or sour milk – see tips)
- Mix together dry ingredients.
- Beat the egg and add to the dry ingredients together with the buttermilk.
- Cored the apples and slice them horizontally into rings.
- Heat a frying pan.
- Dip the apple rings in the batter and allow the excess batter to drip off. (if the batter is too thick and will not stick to the apple add buttermilk one tbsp at a time.)
- Fry apple rings on medium heat on both sides.
Tips & Variations
If you do not have buttermilk you can make sour milk by adding 1 tsp of (apple) vinegar to regular milk and allowing it to stand for 5 minutes to thicken.
