Dutch Apple Pancakes :: Cookin' for One

Cooking for one doesn't have to suck. No indeed. I used gala apples for the recipe shown; nicely sweet and soft after baking. The original recipe calls for one to peel the apples. I don't. For the nutrition and color.

This is great for lunch right out of the oven - hot - and served in a bowl with a little milk.

The next day it's great - again warmed - for 10 minutes @ 300° in the toaster oven. Just enough to take the chill off and crisp the sugar-glazed "crust".

Preheat oven to 400°

3 Grannie Smith Apples - cored & sliced thin, are sautéed 5 minutes over medium high heat in ovenproof pan with:

2T butter
1/4 C sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Mix together to create lovely batter consistency:

3 eggs
1/2C milk
1/2C flour
1 T. sour cream
1/4 t. salt
1 t. grated lemon zest

Bake 25 minutes for golden-brown goodness that makes the house smell like home.

Music: Makin' Pies from Pattry Griffin's "1000 Kisses" album. One of my faves of all time.


  1. that looks so delicious! i think i'll need to try out this recipe--and listen to patty griffin while i eat it! cheers!

  2. Huzzah to the FauxPress Culinary Division! that looks GOOD in a big way. and Patty Griffin! we saw her a couple of years ago, astonishing the huge voice that can come out a such a little girl, incredible. we heart Patty and we HEART the FauxPress!

  3. Pannakoeken! Memories of a long weekend in Amsterdam. Thanks, Jan!

    Also, Patty Griffin rocks.

  4. That looked delicious. I got distracted though when you showed the controls on the stove because I have that same stove. For the rest of the video I was trying to see the range top to see if it was the same. LOL.

  5. @Kenya - that's so weird what will stop our concentration in its tracks. I'm not liking how much effort it takes to keep the stovetop clean, but delighted to have this cooking tool working after 3 years on a hot plate, toaster oven & microwave for culinary delights.

    The first thing I did after the stove was set up was bake cookies. For the smell.


Whoa. Hey. Hi. Talk to me.
