"We all enjoyed this with breakfast sausages. We topped ours with butter and maple syrup, but topping with whipped cream would be another choice."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the eggs and then add the milk, salt and sugar. Sift in the flour, stirring to combine. Let batter stand for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 3

Butter two 8 inch round pans (or use cooking spray along with the butter). Sprinkle pans with cinnamon sugar. Place apples in pan (1 used one apple per pan), sprinkle apples with cinnamon sugar and dot with butter. Pour batter over apples.

Step 4

Bake for 30 minutes or until top is golden and set. Cut into wedges to serve. We cut into 4 wedges per pan (8 wedges total) which worked for the four of us.

Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • Choose apples that are firm and ripe for the best flavor.
  • If you don't have pre-packaged cinnamon sugar, you can make your own by combining 1/2 cup sugar with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon.

  • Substitute almond milk for regular milk - Almond milk is a healthier alternative to regular milk and provides a delicious nutty flavor to the pancake.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter - Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter, and it adds a subtle hint of sweetness to the pancake.

Caramel Apple Pancake Replace the cinnamon sugar with 1/2 cup of caramel sauce. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the apples before pouring the batter over them. Sprinkle additional cinnamon sugar over the top before baking.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus - This savory side dish is a great accompaniment to the sweet and buttery Baked Apple Pancake. The salty bacon and earthy asparagus are a perfect complement to the sugary flavors of the pancake.

Maple-Glazed Carrots: This sweet and savory side dish is a great addition to the Baked Apple Pancake. The maple glaze adds a subtle sweetness that pairs nicely with the sugary flavors of the pancake, while the carrots provide a crunchy texture that contrasts the soft texture of the pancake.


Q: How many servings does this recipe make?

A: This recipe makes 8 servings. Cut into wedges to serve, with 4 wedges per pan (8 wedges total).

Q: What type of pan is best for this recipe?

I didn't use two cake pans, but a huge skillet. This is delicious! We served it with bacon and maple syrup. I used Granny Smith apples (peeled) and with the cinnamon they look kind of dark, but still tasted delicious. We enjoyed this for breakfast for dinner.

This made for a wonderful breakfast dish. My 8-inch round baking dish was in the dishwasher when I made this recipe, so I used an 8-inch square baking pan instead. But other than that, I made the recipe as written, and it was great. I served it with a cup of warm Chocolate Espresso, and it was the perfect pairing to take the chill off this rainy spring morning. Thank you, Ellie.

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe ellie. We enjoyed this for breakfast yesterday. Loved that the apples were on the bottom, they rose beautifully thru the pancake. The pancake was light, fluffy and tender, just the way we like them.
