Any other Twin Peaks fans out there? Today is Laura Palmer’s birthday, so it seems fitting to share a recipe for her favorite: apple pancakes! I got the idea to make these while reading her secret diary recently.
I’ve also been meaning to get a non-stick pan to make pancakes for a while now, so I finally did, and I was able to make these delicious pancakes without any oil. Like all of my recipes, these are vegan and gluten free as well.
These pancakes are soft and fluffy and have a delicious apple flavor from applesauce as well as chopped tart apples. And they’re especially good topped with pure maple syrup of course! This recipe makes 3 medium pancakes, and they are quite filling.
What are some of your favorite types of pancakes? Do you ever make meals/foods in honor of your favorite shows or characters? I’m planning on sharing more TV/movie inspired foods soon, so stay tuned!
- Dry Ingredients
- 1 cup (132g) Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Wet Ingredients
- ½ cup (124g) no sugar added applesauce
- ½ cup (118 ml) soy milk (or plant milk of choice)
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped tart apples (I used ~1 pink crisp apple)
- Optional: more maple syrup for serving
- Chop apple into small pieces.
- Add dry ingredients to a medium bowl and mix well.
- In a separate small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients with a fork.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until evenly combined. Stir in chopped apples.
- Preheat a non-stick frying pan (I used an 8") to medium heat. Once hot, pour ⅓ of the batter into the pan, spreading it out a little with a spoon if needed to make an even circle. Cook until edges are firm and start to brown and large bubbles form in the middle (~1-2 minutes), then flip with a spatula and cook another minute or so until done and remove from heat.
- Top with maple syrup and serve.
