This Dutch-inspired pancake dish is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth. Topped with fried apples dusted in icing sugar, this homely, moreish dish is a great way to get in one of your 5-a-day in a tasty way on pancake day.


  • 300g self-raising flour

  • 150g granulated sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • 100ml milk

  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil

  • For the fried apples: 50g butter

  • Icing sugar to sprinkle

  • 3 peeled apples, chopped

  • Lightly whipped double cream, to serve


  • Start by whisking the eggs in a large mixing bowl, then add in the flour, sugar and milk and beat together until a smooth batter is formed – the mixture’s consistency should be thick enough to slowly drop off the spoon.

  • Heat a little sunflower oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and ladle in a large spoonful to make each pancake.

  • When bubbles rise to the surface and break, the pancake is ready to be flipped to be cooked on the other side for around 1-2 minutes. 

  • For the fried apples, heat butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat and add a sprinkle of icing sugar for sweetness, before adding the chopped apple.

  • Stir occasionally until tender and golden brown and then serve on top of the pancakes with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
