My boys love pancakes. I think it’s a universal kid thing. While they’re the simplest thing in the world to make, they do require that someone stand at the stove and flip them. It can be tedious, which is why I wanted to make a really delicious Dutch Apple Pancake.
I also thought this was the perfect time to share this recipe with you – it’s a great dish for company. It’s so simple. Throw it in the oven and cook the rest of your meal, whatever that may be. We usually keep it simple with scrambled eggs and bacon because that’s what the boys like.
Honestly, with two little kids running around I’m all about simple and tasty. The elaborate meals happen quite infrequently these days. I’d rather spend time with my boys.
I always have a box of King Arthur’s Multi-Purpose Flour in the pantry. It’s so easy to use, doesn’t impart any unwanted flavor and bakes up beautifully. It was perfect for this recipe.
This puffs up while its baking. After you pull it out of the oven it deflates and leaves you with a huge pancake. The first time I made this I was particular about how I arranged the apples. When you add the batter they float around and settle in their own arrangement so don’t spend too much time on that part.
As far as toppings, our family is divided between honey and maple syrup. I’m all about the syrup. Joe and the boys love honey. Which is your favorite?
