  • Prep. Time 10 mins
  • Cooking Time 20 mins
  • Yields 6 servings


1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) Milk
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, melted
2 tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup or 
packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded apple, (about 2 large)
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, for cooking (approx.)


In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter and maple syrup; pour over dry ingredients and add apples. Stir gently just until combined (a few lumps should remain).

In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt a thin layer of butter. Scoop about 1/3 cup (80 mL) batter per pancake into skillet. Cook for 2 min or until bubbles break in batter but do not fill in; turn and cook for 1 to 2 min longer or until golden and puffed. Repeat with remaining butter and batter, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning.


Make a double batch of pancakes on the weekend, let them cool and layer between waxed paper or plastic wrap and freeze in a freezer bag or airtight container. During the week, pop the frozen pancakes in the toaster or toaster oven for a hot breakfast in just minutes.

For the Adventurous: Add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly grated nutmeg and 1/8 tsp (1/2 mL) ground cardamom with the cinnamon and/or substitute pears for some or all of the apple.
