Bavarian Apple Pancake

It’s one of those cold, wet and foggy kind of mornings which I love! Perfect for baking something sweet and delicious.

You take some granny smith apples, which happen to be so cheap and seasonal right now. Chop them up and toss them through some cinnamon and granulated sugar. They are totally yummy just like that…

Mix up your batter, and heat some butter in a heavy based pan, needs to be suitable for the oven as well…

Mmmm… Butter! I bought some fancy pants Danish butter this week and was so excited to use it with this buttery pancake… Well worth it I say! Pour
In the batter and sprinkle the apples over the top. Allow the base to cook for 5 mins then pop it in a super hot oven for 10 minutes. It will look nice and brown by now and the butter will have started to bubble around the edges *drool* now dot some more of that delicious fancy butter over the top and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

Pop it back in the oven for another 10 minutes, it will brown a little more but mor importantly will puff up into a deliciously light and subtlety eggy pancake…
Caution: make sure you don’t grab the handle without a tea towel… A very painful learning curve!

Happy Baking!
