This pancake is more akin to Yorkshire pudding than to griddle cakes, since both are based on light batters and baked at high temperatures. The pancake puffs up dramatically in the oven. Simplify the recipe by skipping the apples and serving with just a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a dusting of confectioners' sugar.
2 Golden Delicious or other sweet apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5-6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, plus sugar for dusting
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
German Baked Pancake Recipe at
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.

In a bowl, toss together the apple slices, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, the cinnamon, nutmeg and 5-6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, adjusting the amount of sugar to the tartness of the apples.

Place a heavy, ovenproof 10-12-inch frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons of the butter, allow to melt and then add the apple mixture. Sauté until the apples are tender but not misshapen, 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

In a separate pan over low heat, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the eggs and milk and whisk until well blended. Sift together the flour and salt. Slowly pour the sifted ingredients into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Add the melted butter and whisk until a smooth batter forms.

Arrange the apple slices around the bottom of the frying pan. Pour the batter evenly over the top. Immediately place in the oven and bake until quite golden and puffed up, about 20 minutes. Turn out the pancake onto a warmed platter, apple side up. Drizzle with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice and dust with the extra confectioners’ sugar. Serve immediately.

I made this dish with the apples and thought it was awesome. My family told me to keep this recipe handy and make again. It was easy to make. Peeling and slicing the apples took the longest, once I got the apples ready it was quick and easy.
20 minutes cook time was perfect and gave me time to clean up my mess and cook some bacon to go with it.
Some put maple syrup on it, I liked it without because it was so moist and lemony.
