Apple Pancake Rings - The low Fat Pancake Alternative

I was making pancakes over the weekend on Valentine's morning for Alan and Aoife when I thought wouldn't it be fun to dip some fruit into the pancake batter and see how they would come out. Apple rings won hands down. They are actually a great low fat alternative to regular pancakes for tomorrow's pancake day.

I just made the batter as per normal and dipped the apples into the batter coating them well, and then frying them using low calorie cooking spray oil. I did notice that the 'softer' apple is better than the crunchier variety!! Here's the recipe:


  • 100g of plain flour
  • 300mls of milk
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of oil
  • Soft apples cut into thin rings and core removed (number of apples depends on how many rings you want, I generally get 4 rings from an apple, you may want to make regular pancakes for others in the house)


  1. Make your batter the night before.
  2. On the day, heat a pan on medium and spray the pan with low calorie spray.
  3. Dip the rings into the batter and fry in the pan, cooking each side for 2 minutes.
  4. Serve warm immediately.
