Stewed winter fruits

  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
  • ½ bunch rhubarb, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon water


  • 2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 2 cups reduced fat milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 small sized bananas, mashed
  • Spray olive oil
  • 400 g reduced fat Greek yoghurt


Step 1

Place apples, rhubarb, cinnamon, lemon juice and water in a medium saucepan. Stir to combine. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until fruit is tender. Set aside. Place flour in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre. In another smaller mixing bowl, combine milk, egg, and mashed banana. Pour banana mixture into well and whisk until smooth.

Step 2

Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Spoon ¼ cup of pancake mixture into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles appear. Turn. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on the other side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining mixture.

Place pancakes on plates. Top with stewed winter fruits and yoghurt.
