Fluffy Apple Pancakes! I love this recipe! It requires very little skill, it’s budget friendly, quick to make and absolutely delicious! Serve warm with a sprinkle of sugar and a dash of cinnamon and enjoy!
I made this recipe without adding any fat to the recipe, other than a little bit to cook the pancakes. The method of adding egg whites to the batter ensures maximum fluffiness and lightness in every bite!
I’ve also made this recipe using grated pears, and it’s very delicious. So I would encourage you to experiment a little and try out different fruits and simply enjoy!
My inspiration came after visiting a German pancake stall in a market in Dusseldorf, and the pancakes there looked so inviting! I ordered one and the lady cooked it, sprinkled sugar and cinnamon then sliced it just like you see in the photo, then handed it to me on a paper plate. it was wonderful!
This was the finished pancake from the pancake stall. It had huge chunks of apple and then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Then sliced as you can see and served on the paper plate!

**** Please note, if you would like more texture and a stronger apple taste, you can add 1 extra apple. The recipe as it is gives you a little texture and a gentle taste of apple.
