Apple Puff Pancake

Reminiscent of Bickford's- for those who are East Coasters!


1/4 cup butter
2 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Place butter in 10-inch oven-safe skillet and place skillet in the oven until butter is melted. Remove pan from oven and add apples. Return to oven for 5 minutes.

3. In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt and brown sugar.

4. Remove pan from oven and pour mixture over apples. Return pan to oven for 15-18 minutes, or until puffy.

5. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over hot pancake. Serve immediately.


*You can serve this as one giant pancake for a large meal, or you can cut it into pieces.

    I made this over the weekend and wondered if I did something wrong. The texture was not of a pancake but of a custard. So it thru me off on the first bite. I will try again but will use just the pancake recipe that you use for the Cinnmon Roll Pancakes (which are awesome!). Hopeing that will make a difference.

      This sort of a pancake will not be like a fluffy pancake that you would normally eat a stack of. It’s definitely a different texture- you probably had it right on!

    Everyone in my family really likes this except for my son. He’s little and doesn’t like the texture of it, so I think it’s more of an acquired taste. The rest of us love it though and I make it every few months for Saturday morning breakfast topped with whipped cream. Yum! I’m off to make one right now.

    I loved it, but agree, the texture was not what I expected of a “puff pancake” either. It was almost more like a bread pudding………still DELICIOUS tho!!
