Buckwheat Apple Pancakes  
These are simple but so filling and tasty.


For the apple sauce:

  • 1 cooking apple

  • Handful of raisins

  • Cinnamon to taste

  • Brown sugar to taste (I used a couple of teaspoons)

For the pancakes:

  • ¾ cup milk of milk (I use soy but dairy would be fine)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour

  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp brown sugar


  • Peel, core and chop apple and simmer gently in a little water with the cinnamon and sugar until very soft

  • Mash with a fork and leave to cool

  • Put egg, milk and cooled apple mixture in a bowl and whisk to combine

  • Mix together buckwheat flour, baking powder and sugar in a separate bowl

  • Add the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and whisk to combine.

  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan

  • Drop large spoonfuls of batter into pan and cook on each side till done


  • You can also use one dessert apple instead of a cooking apple - omit the sugar from the apple sauce if you do

  • If you happen to have fried egg molds (which I did, random I know!) or something similar, you can make them into shapes

Yum! I happen to have some buckwheat flour I'm not sure what to do with yet, maybe I'll make these on Sunday. Thanks for posting!

I also like a plain apple cut into very small chunks and added to pancake dough, then cooked that way so it has some soft "bits", and the pancakes spinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon. Apple and pancake is perfect together any way.

You're welcome - we often make these on a Sunday :)

I have never used buckwheat flour in any of my cooking - I should try it

It's really lovely, it adds more depth of taste to recipes than white flour would.
