Part of the sorting through clutter in our house is going through my recipes! A neighbor shared this Big Apple Pancake recipe with me years ago and I finally decided to give it a try. I suppose you could eat it for breakfast but it is very sweet and we enjoyed it as a dessert, which was perfect.

WARNING: This is not one of those extremely healthy recipes, but it is delicious!Big Apple Pancake

Big Apple Pancake


½ cup flour
2 eggs
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter
1 apple, peeled and sliced
¼ cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat your oven to 400F. Mix together the flour, eggs and milk and set aside. Melt the butter in a oven-proof skillet (I used my cast iron pan) and cook the apples over medium heat on your stove top until soft. Add the sugar and cinnamon. Pour the flour, egg and milk mixture over the top of the cooked apples and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn onto a plate immediately, apple side up.Big Apple Pancake

I am so thankful that my neighbor shared this delicious recipe with me. I’m only sad it took me so long to try it! This recipe will definitely be moving with us!

There is a restaurant in Park Forest IL called The Big Apple and their specialty is the big apple pancake and it looks just like this.

They make this at The Pancake House in Eugene, Oregon. It’s yummy, but you have to wait a long time to get served. I’ll try it at home now. I don’t mind waiting so much there. – Margy
