Berry and Apple Pancakes

Mmm one Sunday I had a hankering for pancakes and I thought I'd mix it up a bit and throw in some berries and grated apples and it worked a treat!

You'll need :
1 cup (250g) self-raising flour
1 egg
1 1/2 cups milk
40g butter
2 apples grated
200g frozen mixed berries
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
I cup of ricotta
Mixed berries, extra, to serve

Place the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
Add the egg and milk and stir until well combined.
Fold in grated apples .

Melt half the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
Spoon 1/4 cup (60ml) of pancake mixture into the pan .
Cook for 1 minute or until bubbles appear on the surface and pancakes are golden underneath. Turn and cook for 1 minute or until golden underneath.
Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Repeat with remaining batter,
greasing pan between each batch.

Place the berries in a saucepan over a gentle heat and slowly add the sugar,
stir until sugar is dissolved. To serve stack pancakes and dollop ricotta on top,
then lastly spoon over berries.

Vintage Plastic brooches
