Dutch Apple Pancake

(6 servings)

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium green apples - peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • powdered sugar - for dusting
  • lemon wedges (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 375 F. In a medium bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, flour and 2 tbs. sugar.

In a heavy ovenproof skillet, melt butter Add apples, cinnamon and the remaining 1 tbs. sugar. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes, or until the apples are softened slightly. Remove pan from heat. Pour batter over the apples in pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the pancake is lightly browned and puffy.

For presentation, you could either: 1) Serve directly from the skillet and slice into wedges; or 2) Carefully, invert the pancake onto a plate so the apple pieces are on top.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve with lemon wedges (if desired).

A classic puffy pancake from the Netherlands. It's best with a simple topping of lemon and powdered sugar. You loose the magic if you drown it in syrup.
