German Apple Pancake

Sunday, October 14, 2012
A nice breakfast recipe that has been in my boyfriend's family for years... I'm sure it will become a classic in yours too! The German apple pancake will be a nice change to your regular breakfast routine. Or why not try it for the brunch menu!?

3 eggs
2/3 c. half-half or plain milk
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. unsalted butter, melted

1/2 c. sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
3 apples
Icing sugar to decorate

  • Peel and core apples and then cut into thin slices. 
  • Mix in a bowl with cinnamon and sugar until well coated. 
  • Melt butter in a pan over medium heat and add apple mixture. 
  • Cook until caramelized. While cooking, mix milk, flour, salt and eggs together. 
  • Transfer apples into a deep, round oven-dish (about 9 or 10" size... the bigger it is the thinner your pancake will be) and pour flour mixture over it. 
  • Bake in the oven at 450° F for about 15 minutes, or until very golden and toothpick inserted in the center comes out completely clean. 
  • Flip onto plate. 
  • Cut into desired size slices and serve.
