    This is a traditional German oven pancake. If you've never had one, you've got to make this. It is soo delicious and nothing like a regular pancake.


    • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
    • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1 apple, peeled and sliced
    • Lemon juice and powdered sugar (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
    2. Beat eggs lightly in med bowl with wire whisk or hand beater. Beat in flour, milk, and salt just until mixed.
    3. Melt butter in 9 inch pie plate (use a pyrex to maximize puffiness) in oven. Brush around pie plate to distribute evenly.
    4. Sprinkle brown sugar and ground cinnamon evenly over the melted butter. Arrange sliced apples over the sugar. Pour batter over apple. Bake 30-35 minutes. Quickly loosen the edge of pancake and turn upside down onto a serving plate.
    5. Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice on the side.

      I like both the plain and apple version of these pancakes, but the apple are my absolute favorites! Try with braeburn or gala apples for perfection!

        My mom used to make this when I was a kid and I love making it for my kids, too! The apples are a perfect addition.

          I've never heard of this dish before -- it great! I like it better with the apples -- it's like eating apple pie for breakfast :) My comments on are: use unsalted butter; watch the time at the end -- for me, I think 30 minutes was fine; and although the recipe says to turn it upside down on the serving plate, I think the top side is much more presentable (maybe do 1 flip to get it out of the pie pan, then a second flip to put it on the serving plate).

              My brother used to make this for me almost every weekend! It is soooo awesome! Great for the memories for me; now making new memories with those I treasure! Thanks for the great times and the great food! You can also add cinnamon with the powdered sugar or, best yet is to add vanilla ice cream and have apple pancake ala mode! Pretty awesome!

                my kids and i loved this. but i think it cooked to high for me at 400. so next time I will cook it at 350 and see if that does better. but, it was simple and good! kind of like a funnel cake. oh, and i didnt have lemon so I just dusted it with powder sugar
