Sunday, April 15, 2018: Dutch Apple Pancake
April 16th, 2018 by Katekoster

Today we wanted something a little different for breakfast but that was both sweet and sort of healthy.  Mom also had apples that she said we needed to eat or use up so we decided to make a Dutch Apple Pancake. This is a really easy, fun thing to make and it looks super cool when you take it out of the oven (it’s really puffy).  It settles down after about a minute but its still delicious. We first made this when Max was in kindergarten doing an apple study in Eve’s class and it has been one of our favorite morning (or anytime) dishes since then.


The first thing to do is preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Then assemble the ingredients: apples, butter, cinnamon, eggs, milk, flour and salt. First you peel and slice 3 large or 4 medium apples. Then you toss with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.  (If your apples are really tart, you may want to add some sugar.  We used Gala apples and they didn’t need any sugar). Meanwhile melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a pan.  After its melted, remove 2 tablespoons and set aside and then add the apple-cinnamon mix to the saute pan.  Sautee till softening but not floppy.

Now its time to make the pancake mix: combine 3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour, the melted butter you set aside and 1/4 teaspoon salt and whisk well.  Helpful hint: try to have the eggs at room temperature. Then pour the batter over the apple mix and pop in the oven for 20 minutes.  Cook until golden brown and puffed up! And if you want sprinkle a little powdered sugar over it before serving, even better.
