Gluten & wheat free white self-raising flour blend

150 g

Baking powder

½ teaspoon(s), level, ensure gluten free

Ground Cinnamon

½ teaspoon(s), level, plus extra for dusting

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw

Skimmed Milk

150 ml

Caster Sugar

2 teaspoon(s)


1 medium, cored and grated, no need to peel

Calorie controlled cooking spray

10 spray(s)

Golden Syrup

4 teaspoon(s), level, or maple syrup


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and crack in the egg. Use a wooden spoon to mix the egg gradually drawing in the dry ingredients until too stiff to mix. Begin adding the milk a little at a time to make a smooth batter. Alternatively place the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Stir the sugar and apple into the batter. Heat a large frying pan or smooth griddle until hot, spray with cooking spray. Add 4 tbsp of the mixture spreading each pancake out slightly, cook for a minute (or until golden underneath), flip and cook for another 30 seconds or so until golden and risen. Remove from the pan and cover to keep warm. Repeat this step to make all 12 pancakes.
  3. Serve the warm pancakes drizzled with the syrup, sprinkled with a little more cinnamon. Serve extra fruit alongside if you like.
