one of my Top Ten favorite foods since i was 18 years old and used to order this at the Walker Brothers Pancake House - a favorite restaurant for those who live on the North Shore of Chicago - so quick, so easy, so delicious - special for Christmas morning, too
- 1 -2 apple, sliced very thin
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup half-and-half
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- cinnamon sugar, added to butter, to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees [i use a Cuisinart larger sized toaster oven - a great appliance for cooking for 2].
- In a cast iron or LeCreuset ovenproof pan, cook sliced apple in melted butter until softened. Remove from heat.
- Mix flour, sugar, salt. Add half and half and blend. Add eggs and whisk thoroughly. Pour this over the sliced apples and place in preheated oven.
- Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove when puffed and not browned.
- Melt butter in pan while pancake is baking. Add cinnamon sugar to taste. Dish up pancake and drizzle melted butter/cinnamon sugar over each serving.
- [use 2nd apple if you'd like this to be more fruit than pancake].
I used 2 apples and doubled the dough but not the eggs. I added cinnamon on top of the apples. This was good with powdered sugar on top. Thanks Carrie :) Made for Cookbook tag game
My dh & I really enjoyed this special treat. I should tell you that my dh seldom eats pancakes, but was thrilled with these. They were quick and easy to make with great results. The pancake was perfect, soft tender and filled with apples and cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing a new family favorite.
I made this for company by doubling the recipe and baking it in a glass cake pan(9x13)and that worked out just fine. However, next time I will spray the pan with non-stick coating first. I used a bit less butter and softened the apples in it in the microwave. The butter/cinnamon/sugar drizzle tops this off PERFECTLY but being a diabetic, next time I think I will try adding a little cinnamon to the apples as they are softening and forego the drizzle. While this is much like Dutch Babies, don't expect it to rise into such high peaks and, as Carrie says, don't expect it to brown. The plain Dutch Babies are a family favorite but they have to move over to make room for this new favorite. We will make these again and again. I try to make enough to have leftovers as they were excellent the next day warmed over at the office! Thanks, Carrie, for this great breakfast recipe! Update: I've made this several times now for company. Most recently I doubled the recipe and put the apple in one half the pan and put blueberries in the other half. The blueberries were a delight and it is a wonderful way to incorporate more of them into the family's diet.
