My boyfriend and I came home one night after a long long long day of work and play. We were starving and oh no, there was NOTHING to eat. I had just been on this whole baking kick weeks prior so there was tons of flour and eggs left from it, so I (very tiredly) concocted this. Its so basic you probably have already made it yourself but its so yummy and hit the spot for both of us. You can serve it up with anything. I used crunchy peanut butter and honey on top and my boyfriend used apple custard. Of course you can top with maple syrup or any thing really... be creative. There is one ingredient, I bet that will surprise you. Enjoy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 red apple, cut, deseeded, and grated
  • 1 eggs or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 12 cup wholemeal flour (for hearty cakes or can use regular flour)
  • 14 cup nonfat milk
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon (I probably used more, I LOVE cinnamon)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar substitute (can use regular sugar, I suggest brown)
  • 14 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 14 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 14 teaspoon cumin (surprise, makes cakes warm)


  1. Mix all ingredients together well.
  2. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop up mix and fry in butter, soy butter, oil, non-stick spray, etc. just like you would a pancake. I used avocado butter, but I live in New Zealand now where everything is avocado.
  3. Keep finished cakes warm in oven on low till all mix is used.
  4. Top with whatever you want. Eat. They go down best when you eat them with someone you love.

These were great! I veganized them using soymilk and egg replacer. The batter was very thick so I added quite a bit of water. Also some baking soda, since my family was expecting something more pancake-like and with the apple, I knew these would be on the heavy side. They're not your traditional pancake, but moist and yummy-tasting. I tried with peanut butter, but in the end preferred maple syrup. My family loved them! Thanks!

These are so yummy and so filling. They were so easy to prepare even Little Miss (DD) helped. I used lactose free milk instead of nonfat milk and I used egg substitute. Otherwise kept to the recipe and it mixture made five cakes, perfect for just the two of us. We topped them off with berries and real maple syrup. Thank you 7emmalee7
