Apple Month: Apple Cinnamon Yoghurt Pancakes

We made these cute pancakes for Mabon and then totally forgot to blog them. I think that everyone had apple pancakes in some point of their life. I always thought they were nice but not too special. These pancakes however are totally delicious. I think the great difference is that instead of just added apple slices on your pancake, the apple is grated in the batter. I loved this idea! The original recipe is from Julia's Album.

Apple Cinnamon Yoghurt Pancakes (makes 12)
- 1 egg
- 0.5 cup Greek yoghurt
- 0.5 cup + 2 tablespoons half-and-half (we don't have that in the Netherlands so use 12% light cream)
- 1 cup flour
- 0.5 tsp baking powder
- 0.25 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 0.5 tsp cinnamon
- 0.25 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large Fuji apple

Mix egg, Greek yoghurt and cream together in a large bowl until evenly mixed. Then add all the other ingredients, except the apple and mix well until creamy. Peel and core the apple. Then grate it by hand or in a food processor. Add apple for the mixture and stir through.

Heat a bit of oil in a pan suitable for pancakes. Add about 0.25 cup of pancake batter at a time for 1 pancake and bake until golden brown underneath. The upper side will puff up and dry around the edges. Then flip the pancake. Bake them for about 2-3 minutes on the other side.

For serving use powdered sugar and syrup. We had agave syrup.
