I only saw a handful of other Pannekoeken recipes out here, but none quite like Gamma's. Be sure to serve immediately as it will sink. Serve with warm syrup.

Really good recipe. I had some Honeycrisp apples I wanted to use this morning, and found this. I made it in a cast iron pan, and in my oven, it only took 20 mins at 400. My 9-yr-old son rated this recipe as "Outstanding!" Thank you for posting it.

Like another reviewer, I first had Pannekoeken in Rochester, MN and loved it! So this morning, a week later, I woke up wanting the delicious dish again but alas, I am in Washington state! Fortunately never lets me down! I too baked this in a cast iron pan (and have the burn to prove it). Instead of apples I used pears because I had two who were packing to go south soon. I melted the fresh butter on the stove and then baked for 25 minutes at 400 and it puffed up so beautifully! Served with raspberry freezer jam a good, strong cup of coffee as you should! Definitely a keeper of a recipe with a lot of options. In Rochester I had mine with blueberries (fresh) which was also delicious.

DELICIOUS! I followed a slightly different procedure but the ratio of ingredients is perfect. Melt the butter in a cast iron pan (make sure it is ultra scrubbed clean; you don't want an onion after taste!) Add the apples ( I used 3 and did not peel them). Cook until apple begins to soften. Pour the egg mix on top and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar (I used half because I served the pancake with maple syrup). Put in the oven. 15-18 minutes at 400F. I used whole wheat flour. SOOOOOOOO GOOOD! Perfect for potlucks and brunches.
