  • 2 eggs
  • 250 ml milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1,5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 2 tbsp dairy butter
  • 150 g (5 oz) wheat flour


  • 6 apples
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 50 ml lemon juice
  • dairy butter (for frying)


Sift wheat flour carefully and combine it with salt and sugar. Add 2 eggs, vanilla sugar, and some tablespoons of milk. Mix the ingredients until you get a smooth mixture. Add the remaining milk gradually while stirring the mixture. Set the prepared batter aside for 15 minutes.

Wash, peel, and cube 5 apples. Preheat dairy butter on a frying pan. Add the apples and cook them for a couple of minutes. Add cinnamon, lemon juice, and sugar. Stir everything and stew the mass for 7 minutes until the apples become tender and soft. Let the filling cool a little.

Add melted dairy butter to the batter and stir. Preheat dairy butter in the frying pan. Pour some batter above. Cook for a couple of minutes until bubbles start to appear on the surface and the underneath is set. Flip the pancake with a spatula and fry the other side until golden brown. Repeat the procedure till you use all the batter.

Place a pancake on a plate. Put a couple of teaspoons of the prepared filling in the center of the pancake and lift its edges. Make up a bag of the pancake. Hold the edges with one hand and tie up the bag with a second hand using a thread.

Slice an apple thinly. Place 1 pancake on a plate. Arrange apple slices in layers and then roll the edges of the pancake in order to get an envelope. Sprinkle everything with cinnamon.

The apple and cinnamon mixture makes the simple flapjacks really special. As a result, we have wonderful apple cinnamon pancakes served in a creative and appetizing way!
