This is a great treat for breakfast, and it's so good for something so easy. Use a non-stick pan for the best results. I found it in a magazine I had picked up at a dollar stores years ago. It's a pancake. No, it's apple bread pudding. No, it's Apple Schmarren! A Note: Bev, who made and reviewed this recipe, gave her technique for turning the Schmarren in one piece. It tastes great either way, but if you have the time and patience, I would suggest Bev's technique. It's a much nicer presentation!

I had never heard of Apple Schmarren before I found this recipe. If you have never tried it, I suggest you do for a real breakfast treat! I prepared this without the raisins only because I had none in the house. I used the only non-stick pan in my kitchen, which happened to be a crepe pan, which worked perfectly for this amount of batter. If you will look at the photo posted above you will see that I prepared this as one piece instead of allowing it to break into pieces. I used two very flexible spatulas to flip, and it worked out well. The sweetness of the apples gives this recipe a wonderful flavor. I loved the cinnamon-sugar topping, but I also think a bit of real maple syrup may work well also! This recipe will serve two very hungry people easily! Love this recipe, Montana Roux! Thanks for sharing it with Zaar!
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2⁄3 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 medium apple, cored, peeled & sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare the cinnamon sugar by mixing 1 tbs. of confectioner's sugar with 1 teaspoons of cinnamon.
- Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.
- Add the milk and eggs and whisk until smooth.
- Add the apple slices and raisins, and stir to mix well.
- In a 10-inch non stick skillet, heat the butter or margarine until it just begins to sizzle and spread it around the bottom of the pan.
- Pour in the batter all at once and fry.
- Don't stir and turn too often, as you want it to brown nicely on both sides, and break up just a little, so you have large pieces.
- When done, remove to plates and sprinkle each serving with cinnamon sugar.
- Depending on your taste, you may not use all the cinnamon sugar, so just save it for another time.
- This makes 2 small servings, or one large.
