German Apple Pancakes
Sweet, simple, rustic, puffy oven baked German Apple Pancakes. Apples and a simple batter transform into a magical breakfast treat.
- 4 apples
- 1/2 cup 1 stick - softened butter - divided
- 1/2 cup - brown sugar - packed
- 1 teaspoon - cinnamon
- 1 cup - all purpose flour
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup - milk
- 1/2 teaspoon - vanilla
- 3 tablespoon - sugar
- Powdered Sugar optional
Preheat oven to 425°. Grease/spray a 13x9 baking dish.
Core, peel and slice apples.
In a medium bowl combine apple slices, 1/4 cup butter (half the stick), brown sugar and cinnamon. In the microwave, heat on high for 3-5 minutes till apples are tender - stirring twice during cook time. Alternately you can do this stovetop in a skillet .
Mix apple mixture well and spoon evenly into baking dish.
In a medium/large bowl - combine remaining ingredients. Mix until well blended. Pour or spoon evenly over apple mixture.
Bake for 25 - 28 minutes. The middle should be set and the pancake should be puffed up and edges nicely browned.
Let sit for a few minutes before cutting. I think this pancake is perfect served as is - but you could sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar. Enjoy : )
