Apple cinnamon pancakes

Fluffy apple-packed buttermilk-based pancakes are easy and fun to make together with your homies:) Buttermilk reacting with baking soda gives your pancakes more lift. You can replace buttermilk with any other dairy fermented products such as yogurt or sour/soured milk, or just milk. Enjoy!:)


3 medium apples, grated or cut into small pieces
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups / 500 ml buttermilk/plain yogurt/sour milk
1/3 cup / 80 ml olive oil
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
a squeeze of lemon
honey and almonds/walnuts for serving


In a medium bowl, lightly whisk buttermilk, oil, eggs, sugar and salt. Sift in flour. Add bicarbonate of soda squeezing lemon juice into it. Sprinkle cinnamon and gently mix until all the ingredients are just incorporated. Do not overmix, it may cause pancake stiffness. Fold in grated apples. Add a bit more flour if apples are juicy and that makes the batter watery. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes (or leave in the fridge overnight).

Brush a non-stick skillet with a little vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. Spoon the batter into the skillet and cook medium-sized pancakes until bubbles appear, pop and form holes that stay open on the surface of the pancake. Flip over and cook on the other side. Continue to cook pancakes on a dry skillet surface until all the batter is used.
Serve warm with honey and nuts or whatever you like:)
