My aunt prepared always for me the pancake with apple and she called it Dutch baby. Nowadays Imake it for my daughters and believe me it is a terrific ‘special day’ s recipe. If you are pressed for time you can prepare the dough the evening before. You can also shorten the preparation time by using apple pie filling, but the crisp of fresh apples really makes it!
Ingredients: 4 eggs, 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 pinch salt, 1 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 cup unsalted butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, divided, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 large tart apple – peeled, cored and sliced
- In a large bowl, blend eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Gradually mix in milk, stirring constantly. Add vanilla, melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Let batter stand for 30 minutes or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
- Melt butter in a 10 inch oven proof skillet, brushing butter up on the sides of the pan. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over the butter. Line the pan with apple slices. Sprinkle remaining sugar over apples. Place pan over medium-high heat until the mixture bubbles, then gently pour the batter mixture over the apples.
- Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for 10 minutes. Slide pancake onto serving platter and cut into wedges.
Other way of prep: grate the apple into the pancake dough mix it well and fry them one by one, then whisk the soya cream until stiff and flavor with palmsugar..It is an excellent, light dessert delight!
