Super Easy Apple Pancake



Super Easy Apple Pancake

I was craving something sweet the other day and this is what came out of the whole desire for a dessert. A super easy to do apple pancake. I really don’t know if it’s an actual pancake or not, but I’ll just call it that way because I used a pan to cook it.

I don’t know if you know this, but I’m not really good with the whole baking and making desserts thing, I’m actually a bit afraid of the concept, because you need to be really careful with the amounts and times and to be honest that’s just not me. I like to add a little bit of this and a little bit of that and with desserts, that’s not always a good thing to do.

But, I have to say I’ve enjoyed this recipe A LOT! I don’t know why, but tossing the apples while cooking them, seeing how they caramelize and how they spread an amazingly mouth-watering smell all over the house was just a joy. Then watching the batter growing in the oven and taking that brown beautiful color. Just lovely.

What about the taste I hear you say? Oh, it was all there! Like Graham Elliot would say: “it’s like sex in your mouth”. Believe me, you’ve got to try it!

Serves: 4
 

Ingredients
  • 50 g of butter
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking powder
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven at 190ºC / 375ºF. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  2. Take a large bowl and whisk together the eggs and the milk. In another bowl mix together the flour and the baking powder. Gently whisk the powdered mixture into the egg/milk mixture. This will form the batter for the pancake.
  3. In a skillet or an oven proof pan, melt the butter, then add the apple slices and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, until soft, stirring or tossing frequently.
  4. When the apples are nice and soft and just a bit caramelized pour the batter over them and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top.
  5. Transfer the skillet/pan into the oven and bake until it puffs up, about 20 minutes. Keep an eye on it though so it doesn’t burn.
  6. After you get the pancake out of the oven dust it with powdered sugar and let it cool for 5 minutes, then serve.

  1. This sounds like such a great Sunday brunch food. Might make this for my mom on Mother’s day. Thanks for the great recipe :)

  2. I sooo want a piece of pie :) )

  3. Looks delicious! Do you think it would be possible to cook it completely on the stove top? I don’t think any of my fry pans are suitable to go in the oven, but I would love to try this.

    • Hey Jing,

      I have to say I never tried to cook one on the stove, but I doubt it would come out as beautifully as in the oven.

      If you don’t have a skillet, or you can’t find a place to buy one from, which is the situation I’m in, buy a frying pan that has a metal handle. That will do the job. Just be careful when you get it out of the oven, I’ve burned myself a couple of times :D

  4. Silly me, just re-read the instructions!
