  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup grated peeled apple
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 24 raisins
  • 24 dried cranberries
  • 12 apples
Cinnamon Brown Sugar Syrup:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Method

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Syrup: In saucepan, cook sugar, corn syrup, apple juice, butter and cinnamon over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved. Keep warm. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)

In bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. In large bowl, whisk together milk, apple, egg and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil. Add flour mixture and stir until almost smooth.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat; brush with some of the remaining oil. Using 1/4 cup (50 mL) for each pancake, pour batter into skillet. Arrange 2 raisins and 1 apple slice on each pancake to resemble face. Cook until bubbles break on surface and bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook until second side is golden brown, about 1 minute. (Make-ahead: Stack between waxed paper; freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Reheat in microwave or toaster.) Serve with syrup.
