Apple and cinnamon are one of the most appetizing combinations. Add to that the nutty flavour of whole wheat and a little vanilla to intensify the flavours and you've got a very delicious breakfast. But the pleasure doesn't stop there. Pour a generous amount of maple syrup over these spongy pancakes, let them soak it in and you've set the tone for the whole day:) This is a very simple recipe for busy people.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 Tb unrefined caster sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup soy milk (coconut or almond milk works great too)
- 2 Tb sunflower oil
- 3 Tb applesauce (I used Bramley applesauce for its sharp taste)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Maple syrup to serve
Mix the dry ingredients well. Add the wet and mix to combine.
Heat a pan on medium. Depending on the quality of the pan you may need to add a few drops of oil to prevent the pancakes from sticking and browning too much.
Drop spoonfuls of batter in the pan, leaving some space between them to expand. Cook for a few seconds until the top becomes bubbly and the sides start to dry out (you can start with only one pancake to check if the heat is right; if it browns too fast, reduce the heat).
Use a spatula to flip the pancakes over and cook for a few more seconds.
Remove the pancakes on a plate and continue with the rest of the batter.
While still warm serve them with maple syrup.
Enjoy and spread the magic!:)
