  • Preparation Time35 mins
  • Cooking Time20 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyMedium
2 tbsp oat flour
2 tbsp soft flour (use low-gluten, which keeps the pancake from getting tough)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
4 extra large eggs, separated
120ml buttermilk
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 large apples, peeled and grated (recommended: Golden Delicious)
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp butter
Cinnamon, for sprinkling
Icing sugar, for sprinkling
4 tbsp walnuts, chopped
Special equipment: 25cm ovenproof non-stick frying pan
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Combine the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a bowl and mix together.

2) Beat the egg yolks until foamy and add the buttermilk. Add the flour mix to the egg mix, combining thoroughly to ensure that they are well incorporated.

3) Add the lemon juice to the grated apple. Pour the batter into the apple mixture. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks, and add sugar. Gently fold into the apple batter.

4) Melt the butter in a ovenproof non-stick frying pan. Pour in the batter and sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar. Toss on the chopped walnuts and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove and dust with icing sugar. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
