Apple Sauce Pancakes



We love these for breakfast around here, drizzled with a bit of honey, some fruit and a cup of milk for the kids and then the left overs go into the school lunch boxes (without the honey, too sticky!) for a healthy recess snack.  No reason why you can’t have them for afternoon tea either.

They take no time at all and you can swap normal flour for gluten free if you need too.  The apple sauce replaces sugar to keep them sweet,  for speed I use a 110 g jar of baby food apple puree but mashed stewed apples would work or grated apple if you are happy with a chunkier consistency.  Anyway they are really easy.


The recipe makes about 10 – 12 fist sized pancakes (sorry, don’t know how to describe that better).  The batter could be made the night before if necessary.

Apple Sauce Pancakes


  • 1 C SR flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 110 g apple puree which is about 1/4 C
  • 3/4 C milk
  • butter for the pan


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl whisking until smooth
  2. Heat a knob of butter in a large fry pan over medium high heat until melted
  3. Put tablespoon sized dollops of the batter in the pan, 4 - 5 at a time cook on one side for about 1 minute or until bubbles start to appear.
  4. Turn the pancake over and cook on the other side for just about another minute and then put on kitchen paper until ready to use
  5. Repeat until you have used up all the mixture
