Yummy Apple Pancakes!

One last post for today. I'm on a roll I tell ya!

Ruthanne wanted pancakes for dinner, and I get bored flipping pancake after pancake on the stove, so I decided to try dutch babies (aka german pancakes). We had an apple in the fridge so we added that to be fancy! Here is what it looked like right out of the oven.

Its nice and puffy right out of the oven and then deflates in a couple of minutes.

Here are my modified directions, from this recipe.

Put 2 tbsp of butter in a glass pie plate in a 400 degree oven.

Then slice up an apple (fairly thinly) with or without skin, your preference.

Wisk together 2 eggs, then add in 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. I add in a little vanilla too. Oh, and the salt (forgot that last night!).

When the butter is sizzling slightly in the oven, pull it out and place the apples in the pan. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Pour in the egg mixture gently (to not disturb the apples) and put it back in the oven until nice and brown (between 20 and 30 minutes). You can sprinkle with powdered sugar, then slice and drizzle with syrup! Yummy!

Those are some of my favorites. It tastes more like dessert than breakfast.

Thanks so much for the inspiration. I'm making it right now for my husband's birthday breakfast!
