Delicious browned apples are the secret to this simple and hearty oven pancake. Very good when served with warm maple syrup.

  • While apples are cooking, place eggs, flour and milk in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour batter over apples in preheated skillet and stir briefly to blend with apples. Return skillet to oven and cook for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes, until golden brown.

Delicious! Baked up beautifully. Light and fluffy with a nice mild taste. That taste is what makes this recipe wonderfully versatile. It's just as yummy with maple syrup as it is with a little apple jelly or jam or bacon and sausages on the side. There is no need to add sugar to this whatever condiment you choose adds all the sweetness you'll want. This is also such a simple breakfast to whip together it's great for kids or company. I submitted a photo I hope gets used so other cooks can see how nicely it turns out:)Thank you Earlene this one's a keeper! EDIT Nov 1 2010 I had to add this. I see the reviews where some are complaining this recipe is too "eggy." People there are 6 eggs called for in this recipe what did you think it was going to be like? I can only assume that maybe some reviewers are not as familiar with baking and cooking than others. I stand by my original review this recipe is a staple in my house breakfast lunch dinner whenever the mood strikes me to make it which is often:) Read More

I was disappointed....I followed this recipe to a tee. It had way too many eggs and it turned out like a quiche not a pancake substance at all. I'll have to try it with less eggs maybe that will help. My husband seemed to like it but I will definately add more apples and less eggs. Read More

This recipe is so tasty and easy to prepare. I get requests to make this everytime my parents come to visit. I use a can of apple pie filling instead of the apple and the pancake comes out perfect every time!! Cyndie Read More

Delicious! I added 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tbsp brown sugar and a pinch of salt to the batter. I also sliced the apples very thinly so they cooked quicker. Next time I will double the amount of apple - that's the best part! Thanks for this great recipe. Read More

very tasty! I cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us and also made the following adjustments: -used scant 1/2 c. whole wheat flour topped off with cracked wheat for a healthier pancake. -added cinnamon. -used peaches (without pre-browning just right in the batter) since they're in season. I'd like to try some berries also. Read More

Excellent! I've made this several times as written. I've also made it and increased the apples and added brown sugar to the apple mixture. You just can't mess this one up no matter what you do. So easy and so good! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I didn't have apples so I used frozen berries instead. I used 3 cups which was a bit too much will use 2 cups next time. I also added some vanilla to the batter (I didn't measure it) and we topped the pancake with whipped cream. It was VERY good. We ate it for dinner but it felt like it should have been a dessert. I also put this into a recipe calorie counter and the calories and fat were surprisingly low. I'll be making this again! Read More
