Pancakes are a universal favorite with kids, since they're sweet and soft! Now make a healthier version with this eggless whole wheat apple pancake recipe.
  • Wheat flour – 100 gms
  • Apple – 1 (medium sized )
  • Oil – 1 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon powder – ¼ tsp
  • Ghee/Butter – ½ teaspoon
  • Jaggery or Sugar – 1 tsp (optional)
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Baking powder – ½ teaspoon (optional)
  • Water – 50 ml (can substitute with milk if you like)
  1. Sift wheat flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  2. Add oil and water and mix, ensuring no lumps.
  3. Peel and core the apple. Grate it with a fine grater.
  4. Add the grated apple to the flour mixture. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, give the pancake batter one more mix.
  6. Heat a griddle or dosa tava on medium flame. When hot enough, grease it with ghee or butter.
  7. Pour a ladle of the batter onto the pan. Don't swirl it around as for a dosa.
  8. You can make small shapes like circles or triangles so that it will be easy for the baby to hold and eat.
  9. Cover the pancakes with a lid and cook for 1 minute on a low flame. This helps the grated apple to cook well and blend with the batter.
  10. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, flip it over and cook the other side for a minute.
  11. Cool and serve with honey or dates syrup. (Avoid for babies under one year)
These pancakes can be made without baking powder too, although baking powder makes the batter thick and yields soft pancakes.
If the apple is sweet then you can skip the sugar.
Instead of apple, you can also add mashed banana to the batter. Elaichi powder can also be added for extra flavor.
You can also cook these pancakes without sugar, adding it later if needed.
For toddlers and adults, water can be substituted for milk in the same recipe.
