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

- If it is too thick, add some more water and mix.

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