When we recently found ourselves with an oversupply of green apples, it was the perfect excuse to bake up some yummy treats. For something a little different I decided to add grated apple to our favourite pikelet recipe and the end result was a huge hit with both of my boys.
You just need a few ingredient to make these Thermomix Apple Pikelets and they make a great snack for the kids and are also lunchbox friendly.
Thermomix Banana and Apple Pikelets
- 50 g apple 1 apple cut into quarters
- 200g g self raising flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 150 grams milk
- 1 banana approximately 100 grams
- 1 egg
- 60 grams butter
- Butter to grease the pan
- Place the butter into your thermomix bowl and cook for 2 minutes, 60 degrees, speed 1 to melt.
- Add the apple (which has been cut into quarters) and mix for 4 seconds, speed 5 to grate.
- Add the self raising flour, milk, vanilla extract, banana (which has been broke in half and egg and mix for 10 seconds on speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 5.
- Preheat your frying pan with a little bit of butter over a medium high heat and add tablespoon amounts of the pikelet mixture.
- When bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pikelets, carefully flip them over and cook for a further 30 seconds - 1 minute on the other side before transferring to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Continue until you have used all of the mixture.
- Serve these pikelets warm with your choice of toppings - we love to eat ours with raspberry jam.
If you manage to resist eating them all you can pop any leftovers into the freezer, which when stored in an airtight container will keep for up to 6 weeks.
We enjoyed our Apple Pikelets covered in sweet raspberry jam, but you can serve them on their own or with your favourite topping.
