German Pancakes

I've seen this recipe from Martha Stewart's show about a year ago. I've made this several times since then. It's easy, it's fast and it's delicious. It's perfect for a quick brunch. I baked mine in 4 ramekins and I used only one (1) granny smith apple. Here's the recipe from

German Pancakes


Makes 6 pancakes.

* 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for tin, and 2 melted unsalted butter
* 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more for tin
* 2 (about 1 pound) Granny Smith apples
* 1/4 cup light brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 3 large eggs
* 3/4 cup milk
* Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Butter inside each muffin cup of a 6-cup nonstick jumbo muffin tin; coat with granulated sugar.
2. Peel, core, and slice apples into 12 wedges, then cut wedges into 3 pieces. In a medium bowl, toss apples with brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon.
3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apples and saute, turning occasionally, until caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove pan from stove; let cool 5 minutes. Divide caramelized apples among prepared muffin cups. Set aside.
4. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, eggs, and milk; process for 3 minutes.
5. Pour batter over apples. Transfer tin to oven; reduce heat to 400 degrees. Bake until pancakes puff up, about 15 minutes.
6. Remove tin from oven; invert onto a flat work surface. Dust with confectioners’ sugar; serve immediately.

Good eats.
