Dutch Apple Pancake recipes like this one are a showstopper! Easy to throw together and quick, too–it’s a family-pleaser yet attractive enough for company.

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.

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.

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: 1 Dutch Apple Pancake


I highly recommend throwing a dusting of Powdered Sugar over the top. It looks extra great!


  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional)
  • Apple Topping
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 2 Medium Cooking Apples, Peeled, Cored, and Thinly Sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Butter


  1. 425* oven.
  2. Put 2 Tablespoons Butter into pie plate and set on middle oven rack.
  3. Meanwhile, beat Eggs in large bowl. Add Milk, Salt, and Flour. Mix well until batter is smooth.
  4. When Butter is melted, tilt it around pan and pour in Egg mixture.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes WITHOUT opening oven door. It will rise and puff as it bakes. Edges will look browned and crisp.
  6. For Topping:
  7. Combine Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg in bowl.
  8. Add in Apples and mix to cover.
  9. Melt Butter in saucepan over low heat.
  10. Add in Apple Mixture and cook over medium heat until apples are tender.
  11. Spoon over the hot and cooked pancake.
  12. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar, if desired. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
