Ingredients (makes 24 Pikelets)

  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 2 tbs caster sugar

  • 300ml buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup apple puree

Using tablespoons of batter at a time, cook in batches for 2 to 3 minutes or until small bubbles start to form on the surface of pikelets. Carefully turn over.

  • Ooh yum. These sound really good.


  • These sound delicious!


  • What an interesting addition.


  • I like how you added fruit puree to pancake batter would be a great healthy sweetener thankyou!!!


  • Another great way of getting my grandkids to enjoy fruit! Thanks!


  • These sound very yummy and easy to make. My 3 year old will hopefully enjoy these, must give them a go!


  • These look great. I’m always after new things to put in lunchboxes and these would be perfect.


  • This goes well with pear puree too.


  • I’ve never used pure but I do grate apple and I have used sliced apple. I will definitely try pure


  • Love the idea of adding apple – I make simple pikelets for my eldest for school and freeze them. Next batch I will try adding apple purée. Thank you for sharing!


  • I’ve made banana pancakes so many times but never apple. I’m very curious to try these and see how my toddler likes them for something abit different.


  • Delicious sounding and looking pikelets. Wonderful photo as well, I love how you photographed them when ready to turn…very creative. thanks.


  • Just made my kids apple sweet potato pancakes. I just cook the sweet potato and apple till soft. Blend it with the liquid, add eggs, lentil flour, pinch of salt, baking powder, raw vanilla powder, cinnamon and almond milk. No sugar and no refined plain flour, so a bit healthier for breakfast or lunchboxes. My kids love it.


  • The pikelets would be dicious with cream or ice-cream,thanks!


  • This looks really nice! A good recipe as well! Thanks
