One of my favourite breakfast on a lazy sunday alongwith cold coffee, easy and quick to prepare. You may skip baking powder if you want to, although it makes the batter thick and yield soft pancakes. I used eno in it. These pancakes can be made with bananas too in case you dont have apples. And if apples are too sweet you can skip sugar/jaggery too. I used jaggery in moderation.
Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes
Makes 10 pancakes
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Apple – 1 (big grated)
1 plum pureed (optional)
Oil – 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon powder – ¼ tsp
1 Cardomom powdered
Jaggery – 2 tbsp
Salt – a pinch
Baking powder – ½ teaspoon or eno half sachet (optional)
Milk – 3 cups (can use water if you want)
Chopped bananas and dates syrup or honey to garnish
Sift wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder and salt together in a bowl.
Add oil, milk, jaggery , plum to it. Mix well. I churned them in mixie to ensure no lumps are formed. Batter should be like dosa consistency. Adjust with more milk or water if required.
Take out in a vessel. Add grated apple. Keep aside for 5 mins.
Heat a pan , grease it well with ghee/butter/oil as you like.
Pour a ladle of batter like you do for dosa but dont spread. It should spread itself.
Cover with a lid and let bubbles appear on the surface.
Flip it over and cook the otherside also till brown.
Serve by topping it with chopped bananas, honey or dates syrup and almond flakes.
As this is kids friendly recipe, you can feed infants 10+ months older but in that case avoid baking powder or eno till they turn 14 months old. This can be made without these things. Different kids react differently so always consult a doctor before introducing such things in their meals.
