Apple Pie Pancakes

PREP: 10 min
COOK: 0 mins


  • Lane's Apple Pie Seasoning
  • Plain sweet biscuits (We used milk arrowroot) 
  • 2 Cups Self-Raising Flour
  • 4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbs Brown Sugar
  • Table Salt
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 50g Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 300g Thickened Cream
  • Maple Syrup
  • Icing Sugar
  • 6 Granny Smith Apples


  1. Firstly stew the apples. Peel and cut apples in to sections roughly 1 cm cubed. Add to a pan and add 2 cups of water 2 Tbsp brown sugar and 2 Tbsp of Apple Pie Seasoning. 

  2. Stew for 20 mins or until it is the consistency of chunky apple sauce. top up the water as you go if needed.
  3. Put aside to cool
  4. Whip the cream with sugar and vanilla essence to taste.
    TIP: Make sure the cream is super cold and it will whip up perfectly.
  5. Put in the fridge until you're ready to serve.
  6. Now we'll make the pancake batter. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large mixing bowl.
  7. Create a little well in the centre of the dry mix.
  8. Crack the egg into the well, add the milk and combine.
  9. Add the vanilla essence, and a good sprinkle of apple pie seasoning.
  10. Heat a large frypan on a medium heat and melt down the butter.
  11. Add butter to the mixture and combine well.
  12. Using a soup ladle, pour your pancakes into the frypan
  13. Watch your heat, it might take a cake or two to get it dialed in but you want it a nice golden brown on the bottom by the time the topside is covered in little bubbles.
  14. Flip then take off the heat after about 30 sec. Don't let them overcook, you want a moist fluffy cake not a dry breaddy frisbee. 

    TIP: Once you flip resist the urge to press down on the cake with your egg flip. (You'll get a nice sizzling sound but you'll be pushing all the air out of your pancake and it will end up a rubbery disappointment.)
  15. Create a good sized stack and top with stewed apples, and a good dollop of whipped cream
  16. Crush a handful of biscuits and drop over the top. 
  17. Finish with a good hit of maple syrup.
  18. Take the rest of the day off because it doesn't get better than this.
