apple pancake

I cannot wait for my new camera to arrive, it comes tomorrow!


I made this by pouring pancake batter into a small frying pan over low heat. Place very thin sliced of apple on top. Turn on broiler. When bubbles surface to the top of the pancake sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar. Move pancake to broiler. Cook until sugar just starts to caramelize. No syrup needed, unless you're a sugar fiend.


I thought this one up all by myself but it's based on lots of pictures I've seen. If somebody knows of what kind of pastry item this is by all means let me know, I'm sure there is a better technique than mine.

    Ooh, which camera did you decide on?

    I know if you had put the apples in first it would be an Apple Pan Dowdy. But that takes a lot longer to bake since it is continuously baked instead of cooked on the stove and then finished off. But whatever you call it, this looks delicious and sounds so good. I think I'll be adding this to my list of things to make for brunch.

    Cooking Light had a recipe a month or so ago. You should be able to find it on their website.

    smcgee - The Canon XSi, Amazon has it for a price that is as low as it's next-step-down camera so I decided that as long as I couldn't really afford any DSLR I might as well pay for one that was a good deal.

    Carolyn - Thanks! I found this one and it looks fantastic: german apple pancake.
