1/2 Photos of German Apple Pancake
Hey Jude's Note:
I love this pancake! Good apples to use would be Granny Smith, Jonagold or McIntosh. If you have access to heirloom apples, choose some that have some tartness to them. This recipe is adapted from "The Pancake Handbook".

- 1Combine apples, sugar, 2 T of the lemon juice and cinnamon in a medium bowl; toss to coat apples.

- 3Heat oven to 450 degrees.
- 4Whisk together eggs and milk in a bowl until well blended, whisk in flour and salt to form a slightly lumpy batter.
- 5Melt remaining 4 T of the butter in an oven-proof 10-inch skillet (a well-seasoned cast iron skillet is good) until just beginning to brown, about 2 minutes; spread apples in bottom of pan, pour batter over apples.
- 6Bake until the pancake is golden brown and puffed, about 20 minutes; invert onto a large platter.
