Apples are baked into a breakfast cake. This is so delicious that you don't need to add any syrup. A great alternative to regular pancakes.

I changed this recipe to the way that my aunt used to make it and we always loved it and still do... melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a 13x9 pan in the oven @ 375 degrees F, once the butter is melted place the apples over the butter and bake for 10 min till apples are soft. (we use 1 1/2 lbs of granny smith apples) When the apples are soft remove from oven and sprinkle a mixture of: 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg on top of apples. then set aside blend eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. pour mixture over apples and bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes. This recipe does have an 'eggy' taste, so if you don't like eggs this recipe isn't for you. Read More

This is not what I would call a pancake-closer to an apple ommlet. I had a different recipe called the same thing and couldn't find it so I used this one. I had to use a casserole dish rather than the pan it called for so I let it cook a little longer. It puffed was brown looked done set it on the table to serve it and the inside was still runny as could be. It ended up taking almost an hour to get done. I will compare my other recipe to this one and maybe try it when I find it but will not make this again-apples and eggs do not go well with this family. Read More

This was so delicious! Similar to a recipe I made before but just as good. This one with cinnamon in the batter was delicious! I did. blend the liquid ingredients until smooth and baked it longer than the suggested time. I also added some cinnamon to the brown sugar topping. We devoured it. It's delicious cold or reheated as well. A keeper! Read More

My family and I really enjoyed this one but I made the changes Caire suggested (and added even more cinnamon since we love lots of flavor). The 5 star rating is with the changes. It really becomes a different recipe after being changed so much. I kind of question how well it would work without those changes. By the way my apple and butter mixture floated to the top when I poured in the batter. I didn't expect that but it worked out great. Read More

I've been making this for years and my family loves it. I looked it up at Allrecipes today to find out how to scale it upward. I modify this way -- I slice the apples and toss them with 1/4 tsp allspice and the cinnamon. Then heat the butter in the oven to melt then add the apple slices and heat apples until they sizzle. Then I add the batter and and top with brown sugar and bake at 425 for 20 mins. DELISH!! Read More

Very dissapointed with the Apple Puff Pancake! Perhaps this recipe should be re-evaluated. Possible ingredient errors: too much egg and/or insufficient flour. Result...definitely mushy custerd-like texture flat and tasteless. I would have liked to have seen as well as tasted a more spongy and sweet pancake. Overall no positve feedback. Thanks E. Read More

My nine year old got to take the first bite and I heard her shout "this is soooo good!" That told me it was a success! I read some of the reviews and went by what a few people said I reduced the milk to 1 cup I also used only 1/2cup of all-purpose flour and added 1/2 cup of whole wheat pastry flour to make it a little more healthy. I substituted Stevia sweetener for the sugar for health purposes and increased the cinnamon to 1/2tsp because we love cinnamon. This kind of reminded me of a caramelized apple upside down cake i make for Thanksgiving and I decided to caramelize the apples in the butter and brown sugar and drizzled a little honey over it and let that simmer on low heat for a couple minutes and flipped the apples over and let them finish caramelizing for a couple more minutes. I didn't have a 9x9in square pan so I just used a 9inch pie plate. I sprayed it with cooking spray first thank goodness I did poured the apples on the bottom and then poured the batter on top. I had to cook it for 23 minutes for it to get done all the way and it was beautiful when it came out. We loved it didn't even need to put syrup on it. I will definitely make this again using my tweaks. Yummy and healthy can't beat that! Read More

So delightful! Not too sweet but sweet enough that I ate about six servings! Wow! So moist. If you like eggy pancakes this is a great fluffy flavorful one! I sprinkled brown sugar lightly over the top. It didn't need anything on it. It reminded me a bit of my mom's "Impossible Pie" that forms its own crust while baking. This isn't quite a crust but it gets thicker at the bottom of the pan which adds wonderful texture. I will make this regularly! Read More
