The Big Apple Pancake
Some people call it a Dutch Baby. Some call it a German Apple Pancake. At our house, we call it The Big Apple Pancake and it has been a favorite for many years. Why? It’s easy to make. It’s quick. It’s loaded with apples. And it is absolutely, fantastically, gloriously delish! Yes, I can make a pie … and I make a great crust … but The Big Apple Pancake is always an even bigger hit.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- Beat together the eggs, milk, flour, and salt until very smooth.
- In a heavy 12” skillet that’s ovenproof melt 1½ T butter.
- When bubbly, pour in the batter and pop it in the oven.
- Bake for 15 minutes, pricking it in the center occasionally.
- When 15 minutes is up, lower the temp to 350 degrees F. Bake 10 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice apples.
- Saute 8-10 minutes in ¼ C butter and the maple syrup.
- Season to taste with cinnamon or nutmeg, or both!
- When the pancake is ready (it will be dramatically risen, golden, and gorgeous), slide it onto a platter, load with apples, and devour. SO GOOD!!
