Apple Pancakes


Pancakes vary in thickness from the ultra-thin French crepe to the robust American breakfast pancake. In this recipe, which calls for sliced cinnamon apples, the oven transforms a rather thin batter into a sweet, giant pouf dusted with confectioners' sugar.

  • Servings: 4

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 1 large McIntosh apple (about 8 ounces), cored and sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, melt butter and 3 tablespoons sugar. Add apple slices, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, milk, cinnamon, salt, and remaining tablespoon sugar. Pour batter slowly over cooked apple mixture. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until dark golden brown, set in the center, and puffed around the edges, about 15 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar; serve immediately.

    I will take the time to complain about a free recipe. I may not have discovered this myself but since it was soooooooo hard to make it and enjoy it ... I will criticize it and act like my version is better. So here it is " whaah , whahh , whahh , less eggs more eggs , I like / don't like. ". Apple pancakes are great , stop complaining people.

    This made a heavy custardy kind of pancake which tasted sort of eggy. I didn't love it but my son thought it was the best pancake he has ever eaten. It is nothing like regular pancakes. Good for a change I suppose.

    I made this tasty breakfast this am. It's very good. I used egg whites and it was very light not heavy tasting. Maple syrup adds a yummy touch on top. Can't wait to make it again :)

    I think this recipe calls for too many eggs (5). It makes the pancake very heavy and chewy almost like a custard. I'm going to try it with 3 eggs next time.

    This is a great recipe and after making it more than three times I have to say it works every time. The pancake is fluffy and so good. Such a great camping recipe. Easy fast and so yummy. Thanks MS.
