I love german pancakes and this one is no exception ratherbeswimmin'. What a great tasting, big, tall, light, fluffy pancake and it was filled with a delicious apple filling. What more could a girl ask for. I garnished with a sprinkling of icing sugar. I enjoyed this very much and will make again. Thank you so much for sharing.

This was quite good. I might add some baking soda next time, but it was good as is. I also liked that it isn't super sweet so you can top it with something sweet without it being overpoweringly sugary.

I added the cinnamon and nutmeg and some lemon juice to the apple mixture, out of honey, used sugar and a bit of Karo syrup. Yum. Oh, and the Pancake, well....I just had to sneak in some Baking Powder, sorry, but it was FLUFFY, and POOFFFHH it said when I placed my apple mixture into it's center and it wrapped it's arms around it, like a soft blanket of Arkansas German Love. Thanks for posting this, I'm German, and am moving to Arkansas! Hah! Oh, and I LOVE PANCAKES!!! love em love em love em

This was just ok for me. I'm an experienced baker & the first thing that struck me was the recipe didn't call for any baking soda/powder so I wasn't sure how it was going to rise into a tall, light, fluffy pancake - & it didn't. While it didn't raise alot, (eggs themselves are somewhat of a leaving agent, so beating the mixture for 5 min, does keep it from being completely flat) it was still good, just more like a regular pancake. Not bad, just not what I was expecting. Also, it doesn't say to peel the apples, but next time I definitely would. The apples ended up getting so soft ( I would cook a little less than 12 min next time) that the peels pulled away, so I was left with strings of chewy peel which we didn't like. Finally, I think a little sugar to the batter & some cinnamon and/or nutmeg to the apples would be a great addition. Would make again but with some changes.
