Apple Pikelets and Poached Apples


I usually have  Banana Pikelets on Sundays so this Sunday I decided to swap the bananas for apples and made apple pikelets.  At first I was worried but it turned out well and tasted delicious.  I  used the  Apple breakfast crumble  recipe to make the poached apple.  I omitted the chia seeds in this ingredients.



To Make the poached apple

4 red apples chopped

2½ cups water

½ tsp ground cinnamon

(Be careful with serving size, read note)


To Make the Apple Pikelets

1 cup self raising flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 red apple grated

1 tbsp. Honey

3/4 cup milk

1 egg

Honey or  maple syrup to drizzle.



To make the poached apple

Add the water, cinnamon and chopped apples in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cover with a lid and bring to boil. Once it boils reduce and simmer for 2 minutes.

After two minutes put the heat off. (Don’t spill the water, the apple will continue browning if it’s still pale or white.)

Set aside.


To make the apple pikelets

Place the flour and baking powder in one bowl.

In another bowl, whisk the grated apple, eggs, milk and honey.

Add the wet ingredients to the flour and continue to whisk until combines.

Put the mixture aside to set for 5-10 minutes.

Lightly grease a non tick pan on a medium low heat and use 1/4 cup to pour batter. Cook batter for two minute on each side or until bubbles form.

Once all pikelets are made, add the yogurt, poached apples and maple syrup or honey.



Apple Pikelets serves 2

Poached apple serves 6. You cab reduce the ingredients by half or you can store the apples in a container and use it for breakfast the next day.
