"We love the taste! Isaac kept asking for more 'cake-cake', his words for pancake. He ate two! It's a great weekend breakfast recipe, but too time- consuming for weekdays." Jennifer Pinarski, mom of 21-month-old Isaac, Winnipeg
6 (makes 12 pancakes)
Prep Time
Prep: 15 min
On the table: 35 min
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 McIntosh apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
  • oil for greasing pan
  1. Preheat oven to 250ºF.

  2. Mix milk and yogurt together. Soak oats in 3/4 cup milk mixture for 10 minutes. Add egg and butter to remaining 1 1/2 cups milk mixture and set aside.

  3. Combine, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together in a bowl. Add reserved milk mixture, oatmeal mixture and apples. Stir just until flour disappears.

  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat and brush pan lightly with oil. Scoop batter into 1/3-cup sized portions onto pan. Cook until bubbles appear on top of pancake and bottom is golden. Flip and cook other side until cooked through and golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Keep cooked pancakes on sheet pan in low oven while remaining batter is cooked.

  5. McIntosh apples are used here as they soften quickly when cooked. Substitute your favourite apple if desired.

  6. Freeze leftover pancakes between sheets of wax paper in re-sealable bags. Heat in toaster or microwave until warm.
