Breakfast – apple and cinnamon pancakes

These pancakes are great as a weekend breakfast treat. They also freeze very easily and you can make them in baby and adult size. Your little one will be able to grab hold of them and you can substitute the apple for blueberries, strawberries or any other fruit that you have to hand.


(makes about 10 small and 10 medium sized pancakes)

  • 225g of plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 30g of melted butter (melt for 30 seconds in the microwave)
  • 300ml full fat milk (ideal for babies)
  • 3 grated apples
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • olive oil for frying


Put the flour and baking powder in a large bowl.

Make a small well in the flour, pour in the milk, melted butter and the beaten eggs.

Whisk all together until it is a smooth batter.

Stir in the grated apple and ground cinnamon.


Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan.

Use a ladle to pour the mixture into the hot pan. Cook the pancake until small bubbles appear on the top, this should be about 2-3 mins. Flip it over and repeat the cooking time of 2 mins.

Place the pancake on a warm plate. You can keep them warm on a low heat in the oven or in between two pieces of foil while you cook the others. I manage to fit about three pancakes in one frying pan at a time.

Enjoy your pancakes with honey but remember your baby should not have this until the recommended age of 12 months.
