Baked Apple Pancake

This recipe involves cooking the pancake in the oven rather than in a frying pan on the hob.  It makes a slightly thicker pancake which is great as a dessert idea.  The pancake itself is free on No Count but I drizzled over 4 tsps choc shot making the whole thing 2 points.  If tracking, the whole pancake would be 11 points (plus any choc shot you add to it).


Ingredients (serves 6):

  • 75g blitzed oats
  • 240ml skimmed milk
  • a tsp salt
  • 2 flat tbsp Splenda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped into small pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. Mix together the oats, 3 tsp Splenda, salt and 1 tsp cinnamon.
  3. Whisk in the milk, eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Set to one side while you cook the apples.
  5. Spray a frying pan with Frylight. Add the apple and lemon juice, and fry for about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat and stir in 2 tsp Splenda and 1 tsp cinnamon.
  7. Transfer the apples to an ovenproof dish and pour the batter over the top. Bake for about 25 minutes.
  8. Drizzle with choc shot (optional). I also sprinkled the top with Natvia icing mix (available online).

  4. Made this today. I think I may cut down on the tsp of salt next time as it made it a tad too salty for me. However will still eat it and will be making another one for sure. Brilluant idea for either breakfast or dessert xxx
