With delicious apple and cinnamon, you can bank on these great-tasting mini pancakes being a favourite with your kids at the breakfast table.


1 1/4 cups 300 mL milk
1 egg
1/4 cup 50 mL Crisco® Canola Oil
1 shredded apple
1 1/3 cups 325 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
2 tbsp 30 mL granulated sugar
1 tbsp 15 mL baking powder
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
1/2 tsp 2 mL cinnamon
Butter for frying


  1. Combine milk, egg, oil, and apple in medium sized bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix until incorporated.
  2. Tip

    Get your children used to a whisk by having them whisk together the milk, egg, oil and apple. Show them how the ingredients come together, which is called emulsification. Have them use a spoon to stir in the other ingredients so they won’t get caught in the whisk.

  3. Lightly grease a 10" (25 cm) frying pan and warm over medium high heat. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls (15mL) into hot pan.
  4. Tip

    What other shapes can be made with the batter? Let your kids use their imagination and tell you what they’d like to see in the pan. Using a squeeze bottle to pour the batter is an easy way to make fun pancake shapes. Try starting with their initials!

  5. Cook until bubbly and puffy. Turn and cook other side. Serve hot with maple syrup.
  6. Tip

    Let your kids tell you when it’s time to flip the pancakes over. When the tops are no longer wet and shiny and bubbles start to form, it’s time to flip!
