Dutch Apple Pancakes

I got the idea for these pancakes from a local pancake restaurant, but after more than one serving of pancakes that were undercooked, I decided to try making them myself. I use the German Pancake (crepe) recipe from the Mennonite Cookbook.

Ingredients:
4 eggs
3 c milk
1 tsp salt
2 c flour
2 apples, slivered

Quarter and slice apples, as thin as you can. Beat eggs, then add milk salt and flour, beating until smooth. Heat (med size) Teflon coated pan and lightly grease (using paper towel) with butter or margarine for first pancake and then every other, if needed. Batter should not be too thick, but still coat pan nicely - add a little more milk, if needed. Pour a small ladle full of batter into pan, while lifting the pan and tilting it in a circular motion, until the pan is covered with batter. Spread with thinly sliced apple slices and cover with another layer of the batter. tilting pan in a revolving motion. Cook at med or just below med heat until batter is not runny anymore and edges lift easily with plastic lifter. Flip carefully, but quickly. This recipe makes about ten 8 inch pancakes.
Sprinkle pancakes with cinnamon sugar. (mix 1 cup sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon)

I had some leftover Schmoo sauce from Charlotte’s Schmoo Torte I had made earlier and drizzled some of that on the pancakes. I won’t tell you haw many I had!

  5. This is my kind of food! I use that German Pancake recipe all the time...so next time I'll try this variation. And I just popped over to check out Charlotte's sauce...and couldn't figure out how I could have missed that recipe way back when...but it was posted while I was off on vacation. How did you slice your apples so perfectly?

  14. I use that German pancake recipe so often. These look delicious! I suppose I could use caramalized sweetened-condensed-milk as my substitute for the sauce. Maybe we'll enjoy these together next month, Mom!

  17. My daughters and I use this crepe recipe often. I will try it with apples, and hand the recipe idea to them too. I have used canned apple pie filling for a quick fruit filled crepe when that is all I have and heating it along with extra cinnamon and drizzling alittle ice cream caramel sauce heated in the microwave is a quick fix if you don't have fresh apples and Shmoo sauce. (that is an addictive sauce by the way) Kathy

  18. Is the "1 tsp" measurement for the salt?

  20. It took 19 people to figure out I forgot the word, "salt"? Actually 20, counting me!

  21. YUMMY!

    I used to make one that you make in the oven. It puffs up and kids love to watch it deflate.

    This sounds much yummier!

    Thank you.

  23. Yes, Mennonite girls can cook! ;) I rec'd a Mennonite cookbook as an engagement gift 27 years ago and it's still my favorite by far. My favorite recipe in the book is Chicken Corn soup and Flannel pancakes. This recipe for Dutch Apple Pancakes looks scrumptious! I'll definitely follow your blog! So nice to visit you! Come visit me at my "Catherine de th`e Cups" blog. ~CC ;)

  27. I just tried this recipe this morning, but with pears. It was wonderful! Thanks for the idea. I ate mine with cinnamon and sugar, and one with peanut butter. Both were great.

  29. Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Version:

    Substitute flour with 1 cup gluten-free pancake mix (e.g. Bob's) mixed with 1 cup brown rice flour

    Substitute milk with unsweetened soy milk.

    Add 1 tsp each: vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg to the batter before cooking.
