Monster Apple Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 5 Tablespoons of butter
  • 2 thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples - peeled and cored
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
We used to use an 10 inch iron skillet for this monster but we're having such good luck with Pyrex that we now use it exclusively. 10 inch round Pyrex works great.

In a mixing bowl, add flour, milk, vanilla and eggs. Mix well. In another bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and remaining cinnamon.
Add butter to a 10 inch Pyrex pie deep dish and put in the oven. (deep dish Pyrex is great) Preheat to 400 degrees. When the butter is completely melted remove from oven.

Now poor the batter into the Pyrex dish and put it back in the oven for 20-25 minutes. The edges will begin to puff.

In a separate pan, warm the apples on your stove top at medium heat, more butter (to taste) and cinnamon. Cook for about 5 minutes or so.

Remove the half-way cooked batter from the oven and now add the apple mixture to it. Just simply place the apples all over the top of the batter. Next, cover the entire service with the brown sugar/sugar/cinnamon blend and put it back in the oven for another 20-25 minutes.

This two step process makes all the difference and really comes out awesome. When the edges are golden to dark brown but not burnt it's time to remove and let the monster sit and cool for a few minutes. Then slice and enjoy.

This is similar to the Original Pancake House pancake.
