Apples Are Amazing - Issue #60

Apples Are Amazing - Issue #60
Cinnamon pancakes with caramelised apples and walnuts.

Hey there, Food Lovers!

This week I've been having fun in my kitchen! I love getting creative with whatever ingredients I have on hand. And guess what? We were given some fresh homegrown pears and apples, so I've been trying some simple new ideas with those. When a recipe calls for apples or pears they're mostly interchangeable so you can use whichever you have.

I'll share a yummy breakfast pancake stack recipe with you below. Who knows, maybe it'll feature on your Easter weekend brunch menu...?

Oh, and I've got a sneak peek for the new video coming next month. I'm super excited to share it with you. It's got one of those recipes you definitely need in your repertoire!

We've also been busy behind the scenes making improvements to the easypeasy.co website. I hope you find it more user friendly and full of inspiration when you're stuck for recipes with a food presentation focus.

Inspiration From My Kitchen - Easter Idea With Apples

With apples back in season and Easter approaching, I found myself drawn to the kitchen for some culinary inspiration. As the weather cools down, a cozy breakfast becomes essential, especially during long weekends with leisurely mornings. This idea might even make a perfect weekend brunch!

Here it is plated on both a white plate and a black plate - do you have a preference?

Starting with a straightforward pancake recipe (included below), I infused it with warm, spicy notes by adding some ground cinnamon. Next, I sautéed diced apples in butter and brown sugar until they caramelized, adding chopped walnuts and pumpkin seeds for a delicious crunchy texture.

To top it off, I whipped up a cinnamon caramel sauce by heating equal parts cream and brown sugar until it was thick and saucy. I also added a touch of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla essence.

The outcome? A scrumptious blend of flavours that made for a comforting and indulgent start to my day. The addition of pumpkin seeds not only provided texture but also a subtle pop of colour. I hope you enjoy this delightful creation as much as I did!

Cinnamon Pancakes


  • 120g (1 cup) self-raising flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 185g (3/4 cups) milk
  • 1 egg


  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Whisk the egg and milk together in a separate bowl.
  • Add the egg and milk to the dry ingredients and briefly whisk until just combined.
  • Warm a little butter and oil in a frying pan to a medium heat. Pour three or four pancakes at a time. I used about 1/8th of a cup of batter per pancake.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, until they're bubbly, then flip and cook the other side for a minute or two.

I hope you have fun trying this sometime.

Happy cooking,
