Apple Pancakes with Zesty Vanilla Whip and Maple Syrup

Receita em Português AQUI

Recipe Ingredients: (enough for 4 if not too sweet toothed)
  • 1 glass of self raising flour
  • 3/4 glass of full fat milk (or a little more if needed)
  • 3 soup spoons and one tea spoon of sugar
  • 1 heaped tea spoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 glass of whipping cream
  • 1/2 of a lemon zest
  • 1 tea spoon of vanilla essence
  • 4 soup spoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 apple (skinless and cut into quarters, then finely slice all the quarters)
  • Maple Syrup (to taste)
In a bowl put the flour and the baking powder and the 3 soup spoons of sugar, and with the aid of a whisk, mix both very well. Now make a well in the flour and place the egg in there as well as the vegetable oil, start whisking from the centre outwards and as it gets thick start adding the milk little by little and whisking until is all incorporated, it should have the consistency of runny yoghurt. Now pour the thinly sliced apple into that and give it one stir, cover it with a cloth and let it rest around 10 minutes.

Mean while put a non stick frying pan on the stove with the flame just above minimum, and let it heat do this about 4 minutes before the end of the dough rest period. Meanwhile in another bowl put the cream there and start whipping it and when is almost at its peak add the vanilla, lemon zest and sugar, bet remaining to peak and your cream is done.

Now on the preheated frying pan, if this one is large enough like 26-28" you should be able to make 3 pancakes at each time, two soup spoons of dough for each pancake and once these are golden brown on one side turn them over. Always check that they are fully cooked through, that is why pan can't be too hot or it will cook the outside with still runny dough on the inside.

I can NEVER resist pancakes - you offered savory before, now it's sweet. All is right with the world!

Christelle said...

I've got a similar recipe, where I grate the apple, great too :)))
humm, love these!!!

Ricardo said...

Tangled you and me, can't resist pancakes, and you visited me so YES, ...all is aright with the world thx for comment. xx

Christelle well sliced, diced or grated lol is apple in pancakes, I done them grated before too, but depends what you want... for more apply taste and smoother batter grate it , for more intense shots of apple and texture to the pancake then slice it...let your imagination and taste buds be your guide...I will check your baby!! cheer for dropping by and comment loved it. :D

Christelle said...

Humm, sorry Ricardo, the pancake recipe is not on my blog yet... It's in my backlog ;)But it
will appear at some stage, in fact, I'll try to get that one done first.. :)
I have plenty of recipes and photos, but I have to assemble them and blog them. I have not been good this February and my recipe posts are down compared to the other months (I aim at 10 a month. So I'll try to compensate in March ;)

I fully converge with you on the effect of texture and results :)

Ricardo said...

No need for any apologies, hehe I'll just keep checking, or you can email me when you do.
I ain't got a clue how many per month I do, I just put them as I make them, some I don't as may be repeats. Thanks so much for explaining though.cheers! :D xxx

Christelle said...

I'll do as soon as I can, the hard beit is to take the photos before they are eaten ;)
I cook more than I blog, but I am behind with posting a lot indeed. I have repeats too like you, I love haggis so much that I had 3 repeats in the last month, lol! :)
You're welcome! :)

Ricardo said...

Cheers Christelle...thx :D
