German Apple Pancakes

A couple of weeks ago some friends came to stay with me at Bear Lake. We laughed and played and visited and ate some fabulous food. My friend Pam made some amazing German Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup for us to feast our selves upon. Good glory they were good! I told them all that I had never made, nor eaten, nor seen a German Pancake in my entire life. This is the very true truth.

My friends were happy to share some advise about making these babies.

I was only happy as can be to do a little bit of German Pancake practicing. A girl can always use a little bit of diversity in her breakfast line up you know. 🙂 I would imagine that many of you are German Pancake Making professionals, but for those of you who are not I would admonish you to give them a try. Make them, folks. Make them today and tomorrow and next week. They are so very simple to put together, and use ingredients you most likely have in your possession right this very second. My kids gobbled up an entire pan full. They taste different from traditional pancakes.  There are more eggs added to the batter so the texture is more moist and substantial. The batter is then poured over thinly sliced apples and baked which creates a puffy golden pancake of wonder. Make them with the Cinnamon Syrup I posted yesterday, and life will be a beautiful thing to behold.

And that, is the very true truth.

Let me show you how to make it happen!

1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
2. Grab a blender (I use this Ninga that I can’t say enough fabulous things about). Carefully crack 6 eggs and place them into it.

3. Add 1 cup of milk, I used 1%…for the very important reason that 1% milk is the kind I buy and keep on hand. Feel free to use what ever percent suits your fancy.

4. Toss in 1/4 teaspoon of salt,

2 tablespoons of sugar

and 1 cup of flour. Blend it for just a few seconds so that the eggs have a chance to get covered up before you add the hot melted butter.

5. Add 4 tablespoons of melted butter

and blend it all up for about 1 minute, or until everything is well combined and a bit frothy.

6. Peel and thinly slice 3 small apples. Please be aware that you may use 2 large apples or 1 giant-sized apple. You just need about 1 1/2-2 cups of apples…give or take a few.

7. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and lay the apples out along the bottom.

8. Pour the pancake batter over the top of the apples.
9. Pop it into the oven (uncovered) and let it bake away for about 20 minutes…

or until it is cooked through and gloriously golden along the top and the bottom.


10. Allow it to rest for about 5 minutes before you cut into it. The puffiness will go down just a bit.

Then slice it…

and drizzle the day lights out of it with some homemade Cinnamon Syrup.

Serve and enjoy!!! Handy printable below…

      Hi Jennifer,
      I don’t mind at all if you share the recipe with your readers. Especially if you are willing to add a link back to me. 🙂

    Jamie, I am fairly new to your blog, love it and your sweet style. I know from your “about me” page that you worked at the Lion House restaurant. I really would love to order their cookbook, but I know they have several titles, e.g., Classics, Bakery, etc. Is there an original one or a best one that you can recommend? Can you give me the exact title and maybe what is on the cover for a picture (I assume you have at least one of their cookbooks!!!). Thank you so much.

      Hey Teresa,
      The cookbook I have from The Lion House is just simply called Lion House Recipes. It looks like it was published in 1980 and there is a pretty table set with some fancy desserts on the cover. Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Hi Jamie,
    I love your site! I made what I thought were pancake mini muffins the other day but as they were baking I found out that they were actually German Pancakes. I should have known by the egg to flour ratio. Anywhoo..they turned out really cute using mini muffin pans. I added bananas to some and chocolate chips to a few too. Just an idea for you to maybe try. The mini versions are only yummy cold. I munchkin snacked on them throughout the day.

    We made this the other night for dinner and it was wonderful! We felt like we were eating apple pie 🙂

    What kind of apples did you use for this? I think they look like Granny Smith in your pictures. All I have on hand are Gala. Do you think those would work? Thanks!

    Oh, and one more question. I know you said your family gobbled it up, but do you know if it is good left over. It’s just the hubby and I, and we probably shouldn’t eat the whole pan! Thanks again!

      Hi Katie,
      I used Gala apples. This recipe does actually taste great as leftovers. Hope you love it!
