Dutch Apple Pancake recipeslike this one are a showstopper! Around the little Indiana household, we really only eat hot breakfasts. This recipe for Dutch Apple Pancakes, also known as Pannekoeken, was a hit with everyone. If you thought that it takes too much time to make a warm breakfast in the morning, you need to take a look at this great oven pancake recipe.
It is so incredibly easy to throw together and quick, too–it’s a family-pleaser yet attractive enough for company. It bakes in roughly fifteen minutes while you prepare the apples. Hint: if you are out of apples or don’t want to mess with them, feel free to substitute a can of apple pie filling. Leave out the cinnamon and the rest of the ingredients. Simply heat it up and then pour it over the cooked puff pancake.If you plan to sprinkle a little powdered sugar on it (it does look pretty that way) then let it cool for a little bit or the sugar will melt into it.
If you happen to have younger kids in your house, if you don’t involve them in the cooking process, be sure to call them into the kitchen to see what the pancake looks like going into the oven. Why? Well, when the batter is poured into the glass pie plate, it’s flat. But magical things happen once it hits the heat of the oven. It isn’t called a puff pancake for nothing! Kid #2 was impressed by the way the pancake puffs while it bakes and Kid #1 was excited to eat a breakfast food that looked like his favorite dessert: apple pie. From the Dulce Dough blog.
