Every time we go out for breakfast, my son orders this wonderful Apple Pancake
The dang thing is good, but costs $15
I figured with a little messing around, I would make it at home
I searched the internet, and found some recipes I liked, but we tweaked things a little to our liking
Not Too Pretty on this side
but it's what's underneath that counts!!
I call this my Breakfast Sunday
Happy Father's Day!
APPLE PANCAKE RECIPE
4-5 large Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored and sliced ¼” thick
1 cup granulated sugar
2 TBS ground cinnamon
1/2 - 1 tsp nutmeg
6 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 ½ sticks butter
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup bacon bits
Bread flour can be used instead of all-purpose flour & baking powder
Preheat oven to 425°
In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, and set aside
In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt, flour, baking powder, milk and vanilla extract. Mix well until batter is very smooth
In a large frying pan, melt ½ the butter on medium heat. Add apples and cook until slightly tender. Add ½ of the cinnamon and sugar mix. Continue to cook until the cinnamon and sugar has turned into syrup, or about 5 minutes.
Pour the apple and cinnamon & sugar mix into a 9x13 cake pan
Gently pour batter over the apples so you cover them. Don’t mix the batter and the apples
Place pan on the middle rack of a preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, or the top is lightly browned. Remove from oven.
While the apple pancake is in the oven, use the same large frying pan, melt the remaining butter and cinnamon & sugar mix and cook on medium heat until it’s turned into syrup, or about 5 minutes.
Cut into squares and serve with bacon bits, chopped pecans and whipping cream
Drizzle the extra syrup over your apple pancakes
You can remove the entire pancake from the pan, by placing a large platter on top the pan and flipping the entire pan over. The pancake should slide right out and the apples are now on top
