Who doesn't love a pancake? These are full of squishy sweet apples and warming cinnamon. 

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Servings: 4
  • 185 g 1 ¼ cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 20 g 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 250 ml 1 cup mylk or water
  • 50 ml 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1.5 medium apples chopped finely (set some aside for decoration)
  • 1 tsp coconut nectar or maple syrup for drizzling
  • Extra oil for frying
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients, except the apple.
  2. Make a well in the middle and add in all the liquid ingredients. Mix well. The batter should be mostly smooth, with may be just a few lumps.
  3. Heat a saucepan (or 2 if you have more than one) with a couple of teaspoons of oil. When the saucepan is evenly heated pour on just under ½ cup of batter. Lightly spread it around with a spoon to form a circle.
  4. Before the batter sets, quickly place 1/6 of the chopped apple on top in a single layer, then cover apples with a small drizzle of extra batter.
  5. Cook pancakes until their edges are browning and so you can see some bubbles on the surface with a few of them having burst. This will be around 5 minutes per pancake. Turn down the heat if you can see the pancake is burning.
  6. After 5 minutes (or when pancake has cooked on that side) flip over and cook the underside for 3 minutes or so more. Then transfer to a cooling rack, or keep them warm in the oven.
  7. To serve, place pancakes in a stack, put more chopped apple on and around them. Then drizzle with maple syrup or coconut nectar.
