Easy Apple and Lavender Pancake

The apple tree in our garden broke last month due to high wind. We have a lot of tiny apples that we dont want to throw away. Made apple juice, apple pie, and other known apple things.

We needed something different, this is when I found a recipe for Oladi – Russian apple pancake. Normally it needs kefir milk, so Ian can eat them, I made a vegan version.


  • Chopped apples
  • Flour
  • Sugar – I used Lavender Sugar
  • Plant-based milk – I used oat milk
  • Plant-based yogurt – I used coconut yogurt

How to make

Like any pancakes, I never really measure properly, the way I measure is by looking at the batter, mix until the batter looks right.

  • Starting with the flour in a bowl – if you have cups, you can start with 1 cup
  • Mix in the lavender sugar – or just normal sugar – I put in 1 tablespoon
  • Create a well
  • Put the milk in slowly – mix well
  • Put the yogurt in slowly – I used in 2 tablespoon mix well

Mixture Pancake Batter and Chopped Apple

If the mixture is too runny add flour bit by bit, if it is to thick add a bit of milk or yogurt.

  • Warm up the pan, put a bit of vegan butter or margarine, wait until it is hot. To test you can just drip a bit of the batter, it will sizzle.
  • From theblog I read oladi is cooked in small portions  rather than a pan sized pancake.
  • Flip sides until they are both golden brownish.


With fresh fruit, maple syrup etc. Ian ate his with maple syrup and a sprinkle of salt.

The lavender sugar makes it smells nice and flowery for me, but I know not everyone love lavender smell.
