We saw this recipe on Michelle Greenwald's ( Blog, and gave it a try. We both assumed it would be too sweet and gooey for breakfast, but since it's dreary and rainy this morning, figured we'd fire up the oven and give it a try. YUM! It wasn't too sweet at all, and the pancake had a bit of a custardy taste. It was easy to put together and made enough for the both of us, with a couple bites of crust left over for our four dogs. The recipe omits instructions for making up the batter, but we just combined the ingredients and mixed well. We used a 10-inch iron skillet, but any oven-safe non-stick pan would do.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
  3. Peel the apples and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet.
  5. Add apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Saute the apples until they soften and become light golden brown on both sides (approx. 4-5 minutes).
  6. While sauteing the apples, beat eggs and combine with milk, flour and salt, stirring well to make a smooth batter.
  7. Pour the batter over the apples and place the pan in the hot oven.
  8. Bake approximately 18 minutes. Do not open oven while baking. Use oven light to check. Pancake is done when it no longer appears wet on top.
  9. To serve, invert the pan over a dinner plate.

I have been wanting to make this for some time now and I finally got the chance to this morning. Ohh, it looked so good when it came out of the oven I had to show everyone but I took one bite and it was like eating cinnamon eggs. I will try it again because I feel like it's a good recipe but I'll definitely add much more flour maybe like 3/4 or a whole cup. Still the taste was good(ish).

Made for Fall 09 PAC Premie Adoption. I picked the biggest nicest apple I could find off my tree in the yard to make this for breakfast this morning. This was not only easy, but extremely delicious, add a drizzle of maple syrup if this isn't sweet enough. But ohhh my goodness, it is good, good, good. Thank you for a wonderful keeper, I will be making this for Sunday Brunch often.

I made this for DH and I as a Sunday morning breakfast treat. It was great, & very quick & easy to make as I used pre-sliced apples from my freezer. However, when I started making this recipe & read the directions, I realized there was no mention of sugar in the ingredients. I did manage to locate the original recipe on the web & found it calls for 3 tablespoons sugar. Will made again!
