Matafan apple pancakes recipe

Matafan aux pommes
Preparation time
20 min
Cooking time
45 min


  • 4 apples
  • 125g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 soup spoon of oil
  • 2 soup spoons of fruit brandy
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 4 soup spoons of powdered sugar
  • Salt


Peel and slice the apples. Take a baking dish and mix the flour in it with a pinch of salt along with the eggs beaten to omelette consistency, the brandy, the baking powder, and the sugar. Add 10cl of warm water to obtain a smooth mixture, not too thick. Add the apple slices. Take a non-stick frying pan, heat the oil in it and put the preparation in.  Cover and leave to cook over a low heat for 30 minutes. Turn the matafan over (slide it onto a plate then flip sides) to cook the other side. Serve hot or warm.
