A fuss-free start to a fuss-free day! That’s a catchy one :).
My fluffy Apple Pancakes are just what you need to kick off your day. Mighty easy, super yummy and with a sprinkle of health. Have them with your cuppa and you’re good to go.
One is the rule of thumb here. All you need, is a cup. Yes, a cup or…even a mug 🙂
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2 (depending on the size of pancakes)
One cup plain flour
One cup milk
One egg, big size
One tsp sugar (optional)
One pinch salt
Butter for frying
1. Heat up a fry pan.
2. In a big size bowl, whisk together flour, milk, egg and salt.
3. Grate apple, tip it in the above mixture and combine.
4. Add butter to the pan and spoon the batter making pancakes of desired size and thickness. Keep the heat on medium.
5. If you have a larger pan, you can ladle in two to three at a time.
6. Fry for couple of minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the top; then flip them over and cook the other side.
7. Keep going until all the batter is used up.
8. Serve with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a generous drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
P.S.: 1. In place of apple, you can also use grated pear, blueberries or chopped strawberries.
2. Top them up with a dollop of curd or vanilla ice cream.
3. You can use sliced bananas, strawberries or fruits of your choice as sides.
4. Since there is no sugar added, you can make sweet or savory pancakes.
5. If the batter is extra, pack it up in an airtight container and leave it in the fridge for frying later. It stays for 1-2 days.
Have a nice day 🙂
Warm welcome to BitesandPlaces!
My humble little blog has its own story to tell… my story… I’m gregarious being, vagabond at heart and have a monstrous appetite for food. I used to be a Human Resource professional until few years ago. To be among, with and for people was the reason I’d chosen this field.
Being in HR, I could only accomplish the ‘people’ part. I still yearned to be in those places I saw on TV and travel magazines and craved to eat all kinds of food that lulls you into coma. I didn’t want to be just a spectator anymore. I wanted to be in those pictures.
Luck smiled at me and I fell sick with an awful heart, lungs and liver disorder. Family said stay home. Rest.
Rest? Were they crazy? I grabbed this opportunity and quit my job; to pursue my passion – people, places and food.
Being on my own gave me lot of spare time for all the three.
I’m not a professional cook, but I’m mighty passionate about cooking. Although Indian, BitesandPlaces does not restrict itself to just the dishes of my country, which are toothsome beyond doubt. I’ve also tried to put together a bunch of mouth-watering and eye-pleasing recipes scattered from all parts the world. A lot of them are a tribute to my mum’s kitchen, the ones I grew up with. Few of them are a result of my experimentation and few others, borrowed from my generous friends 🙂
I religiously follow Andrew Zimmern’s favorite quote – what looks good to your eyes, EAT IT!! After all food is something that follows no boundaries, isn’t it.
Travel, I believe, is about exploring new places, meeting new people, building new relations, soaking in their culture, gorging on their cuisines, discovering their stories and of course, capturing all of these in my teeny-tiny camera.
After having been there and done that, I was inspired to share my travelogues with you, encourage you to travel and in some way find a bit of your happiness through me.
Thus BitesandPlaces was born!
Life’s a journey and people, places and food are all a part of it. So, come along with me and eat your way through this journey called Life…
I like staying connected. And it’ll be a frosting on my cake if you drop a line or two at firstname.lastname@example.org.
