Sunday Morning Breakfast -Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

It is a cold Sunday morning. I am not in the mood for eggs. I do not have dosa batter in the fridge and too lazy to make any other Indian breakfast. I am in the mood for something warm. I find an apple on the counter, waiting to be cut. I had a yearning to eat a pancake. Most pancake batters call for milk, but I decided to add water instead (would have added soy milk or almond milk if I had some). I went easy on the butter, used olive oil instead and whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. I threw in some apples and can safely call it a healthy breakfast. I made it in less than 10 minutes, easy and quick to make! A cup of tea, with it and it did hit the spot! This recipe makes 2 servings.


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup water (or almond/soy milk)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1/4 tsp butter (optional) or oil
  • 1 tsp brown sugar


  • Whisk egg, oil, water, and sugar together
  • Add in flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, and salt and mix till combined
  • If it is too thick, add some more water and mix.
  • Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat
  • Let pancake batter rest while the pan is heating up
  • Add oil or butter to the pan
  • Pour about 1/3 cup of batter in the pan
  • Top the pancake with chopped apples and sprinkle brown sugar on top
  • You should see bubbles on top and the bottom should be golden brown
  • Flip the pancake and cook till golden brown
  • Serve hot

Serve it plain or with honey or maple syrup. Enjoy!
