German Apple Pancakes

German pancakes are a staple in my husband's family, and since we have been married it has become a WEEKLY breakfast/dinner tradition in our household.  Today I decided to put a little twist on the old classic and try something new.  Topped off with warm maple syrup and powdered sugar, this recipe is SUPER simple, and YUMMY, and totally reminds me of The Original Pancake House's infamous Apple Pancake.  It is VERY filling so if your family is just as small as mine is (there is only 3 of us so far...), you will definitely have some leftovers.  Happy eating!


1/4 C butter
3-4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 1/2 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
6 eggs
1 C flour
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 t salt (optional)
3 T sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
4 T brown sugar


1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.  Spray 9x13 dish with cooking spray and place butter inside of pan.  Place dish immediately into the preheating oven to allow the butter to melt.
3.  Mix apples with the 1 1/2 T sugar and the 1 t cinnamon in a bowl, set aside.
4.  Mix the rest of the ingredients, except for the brown sugar, in a separate bowl until mixture is nice and smooth.
5.  Remove the dish out of the oven once oven is ready and butter is melted.  
6.  First add the apple mixture to the dish.
7.  Next add the egg mixture on top of the apples, then sprinkle the brown sugar on top.
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until sides are puffed and browned.

*Like previously mentioned, these pancakes are SUPER good topped off with maple syrup and powdered sugar.
