German Apple Pancake Recipe: Step-by-Step Photos
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is pre-heating, core and slice the apples.
Create the batter for your German apple pancake. In a blender mix the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, until well blended.
To bake the German apple pancake, you’ll need a cast iron skillet or pie pan. An enameled skillet works great too. Add butter to the dish and place it in the oven until the butter is melted.
Carefully remove the pie dish or skillet from the oven. Then, add in single layer apple slices. Don’t forget your oven mitts! The dish may still be hot from melting the butter.
Next, pour the German apple pancake batter over apples.
Sprinkle the top of the German apple pancake with brown sugar and bake for 45 minutes to one hour.
When it’s done, it’s delish. Every bit as sweet as it looks and sounds. Besides breakfast, I would also put this down in my list of desserts. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it’s a great alternative to apple pie.
Slice up and serve like a pie. Enjoy!
