Apple and cinnamon pancakes with maple syrup

Pancakes need syrup like apples need cinnamon. Combine all four and you have pure delight. Make sure you get the real maple syrup for this dish. The artificially flavoured stuff just isn't the same.

1.Sift flour, sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl; stir in milk, egg yolk and canned pie apple.
2.Beat egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form; fold gently into apple mixture.
3.Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat; pour ¼-cup of the batter into pan; cook until browned both sides. Repeat with remaining batter to make a total of 8 pancakes.
4.Cook apple wedges and extra sugar over a low heat in same pan, stirring, until apple caramelises.
5.Divide pancakes among serving dishes. Top with apple mixture then ice-cream; drizzle with syrup.

Maple-flavoured syrup or pancake syrup, made from cane sugar and artificial maple flavouring, is not an adequate substitute for pure maple syrup. A flavoured ice-cream such as toffee crunch or butterscotch can be used instead of plain vanilla; omit the maple syrup if you use a flavoured ice-cream.
