I’m pretty sure I could have pancakes every day! We have just about every kind of pancake you need on this blog, so I thought I would add one more! Plus Memorial Day is coming up and this could be a great breakfast to try! These Apple German Pancakes do not disappoint. Once a week I plan a breakfast dinner. By plan I mean I write down “breakfast dinner” not really knowing what it is we will actually eat. These pancakes often come to my mind because they only take a few ingredients that I almost always have, they’re super quick to throw together and they are delicious! I actually make two pans of these to feed my whole family (there are 6 of us). Did I mention we LOVE pancakes?! I think I could eat a whole pan of these by myself! Don’t worry I control myself, mostly because I have a bunch of little people who share my love for them too!
You Might Also Like:
- 5 Tablespoons butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon or more to sprinkle the whole bottom of the pan
- 2 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (about 2 medium)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (I've only used the pastry flour but you could probably use regular whole wheat, it will probably taste a bit different)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Melt butter in a 9 x 13 in pan for just a few minutes while the oven is preheating. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn (you must melt it this way or it will stick to the pan, just trust me it's true!) Brush the melted butter over the bottom and sides of the pan.
- Sprinkle cinnamon over melted butter.
- Arrange sliced apples over the cinnamon.
- In a medium bowl, beat eggs slightly with a fork or whisk.
- Beat in flour, milk and salt just until mixed (if you over beat, the pancakes may not fluff)
- Pour batter over apples.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Immediately loosen the edge of pancake and turn upside down onto a heatproof plate. (I just put it on my cutting board, or another 9 x 13)
- Serve with pure maple syrup.
