German Apple PancakeApril 22, 2016
D and I just had a lovely baby boy! It’s been a bit hectic in our house since his arrival, so I haven’t had much time to cook. This is the first meal I prepared from scratch, and it was perfect for a quiet Sunday morning.
You will need:
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 c flour
- 1/2 t baking powder
- 1 T + 1/4 c sugar, divided
- 1 t ground nutmeg, divided
- 1 t ground cinnamon, divided
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1/2 c milk
- 2 T + 1/4 c unsalted butter, divided and melted
- 1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices (I used a honeycrisp)
Then you will…
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs with the flour, baking powder, a tablespoon of the sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon.
- Whisk in the vanilla extract, milk and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Set aside.
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a 9-inch pie plate on the lined sheet.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar with the remaining cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter in the pie plate and brush some butter up the sides.
- Sprinkle 1/2 of the spiced sugar mixture on the melted butter.
- Top with the apple slices and sprinkle with the remaining spiced sugar mixture.
- Bake 10 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly.
- Gently pour the batter on top of the apples and return the dish to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to 375 degrees. Bake for another 10 minutes.
- Serve hot with a little powdered sugar or maple syrup.
