German Pancake with Sauteed Apples

October 26, 2009 at 12:13 pm Leave a comment

I am working my way through a large amount of apples and many apple recipes. I have to admit I am getting a little tired of the traditional apple bread, muffins and the like. I was intrigued when I found a recipe that called for sauteed apples. For that reason, on Saturday morning my husband made german pancake while I made the sauteed apples.

If you’ve never had german pancake you really must try it. It is a simple flour and egg mixture that puffs up as it bakes. Dollops of butter in the batter melt into golden crusty bits as the center becomes firm and quiche like. The edges bake up just like a popover. Syrup, powdered sugar, or fruit, top this savory concoction with a sweet balance.

German Pancake

6 eggs

1 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

4 tablespoons butter

Yield: 4 servings

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Generously butter a 10 inch oven proof skillet, pie plate or round baking dish and a 6 inch round oven proof dish. Beat eggs until blended. Add flour, salt, and milk to eggs. Mix together.

Pour the batter into prepared skillet/dish. Top with teaspoon sized dollops of butter.

Place in the oven and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for 10 more minutes. Serve with powdered sugar and topping of choice.

Sauteed Apples

3-4 medium sized apples

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3-4 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons apple juice or cider

Peel and slice apples. Melt butter in 10 inch skillet.  Add apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and cider/juice. Cook until apples are fork tender. Serve over german pancake or as a side dish.
