Dutch Apple Pancakes

2 servings

Serve with a side of bacon and a small serving of herbed scrambled eggs.


  • Cooking spray or butter for coating
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 medium apple, cored, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease 2 six-inch ovenproof bowls (we use cereal bowls, 5-inch Pyrex flower pots or French onion soup bowls) with butter or cooking spray.

In a fry pan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add the apple slices, cinnamon and sugar, and sauté, stirring occasionally until the apples begin to soften and brown, 5-6 minutes. Cover to keep warm and set aside.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Add the milk, and beat the mixture until blended. Sift the flour and salt into the egg mixture and beat just until blended. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and add to the flour-egg mixture and beat until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake until the pancake is browned and puffed up, about 20-25 minutes.

Remove the pancake from the bowl and place on a serving plate. Fill with the cinnamon-apple mixture. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.
