Apple Topped Pancakes


This is a very healthy and simple dish.  The recipe does not have to be exactly as below.  The amount of apple topping can be changed according to taste.  For the apple topping, I have used canola oil in the past.  But I prefer butter since it gives a nice aroma and flavor.

Ingredients

Pancake:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • Butter or oil spray for skillet
  • Or you can use a pancake mix from store

Apple Topping:

  • 2 small green apples (Granny Smith) peeled, cored and cut into thin slices
  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoons brown sugar

Method

Make the apple topping:

  • In a skillet melt butter and add apples, cinnamon and sugar
  • Reduce heat to medium and stir continuously and cook for about 2 – 3 minutes or until  the apples are soft
  • Keep aside

Make the pancakes:

  • Beat egg whites lightly
  • Add milk, sugar, oil and mix well
  • In a separate bowl sift together flour, salt and baking powder
  • Add egg mixture slowly into the flour mixture stirring continuously
  • Add a little bit of butter on a skillet and add a spoonful of batter to the skillet
  • Immediately add a couple of apple slices on top of the pancake and cook
  • Flip the pancake and cook the other side
  • Serve with butter

Yields: 2 – 3 servings
