German Apple Pancake

The traditional way to make this beloved German dish, known as Apfelpfannkuchen, is to flip the pancake in the pan while it is on the stovetop to cook the second side. This can be a tricky maneuver since you don't want to displace the apples. Here, the pancake is finished in the oven, which is an easier option. Most other European pancakes, such as Swedish pancakes, are also cooked at least partially in the oven. European pancakes often contain pieces of fruit or meat, such as the apples used here or the ham called for in Swedish pancakes.

A Holiday Tradition
November 11, 2011
This recipe has been a Christmas brunch treat in our family for the last four years. I now live in London, but still make it every year when I visit my parents for the holidays. No maple syrup necessary, this dish is best when served as pictured with a dab of whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

Go-to recipe
September 12, 2010
I rarely follow recipes (I just peruse them for ideas), and I have very few go-to recipes. But this German Apple Pancake is a go-to for weekend breakfast, even when I don't have company! It's not hard, but any extra effort is well worth it - the outcome is divine! I like to sweeten whipping cream with a little maple syrup to serve this pancake. I've been making this recipe for at least 3 years! Honeycrisp apple season is a great excuse for making this dish.

Highly Recommended. Five Stars

I LOVED the recipe. It was a cinch to make and made a very hearty breakfast along with some strongly brewed black tea. I might try the pancake with pears next time.
