I love discovering new apple varieties. Especially when apple picking with my family. But it’s not apple picking season near me yet.
After receiving the beautiful Lady Alice apples from Rainier Fruit, I really couldn’t wait to get picking! These apples, even though shipped to me from Washington, tasted like they’d just been plucked from the tree. They might just be the perfect apple, ever!
Unfortunately, I won’t find Lady Alice apples ripe for the picking here in Southern California. Lady Alice apples were created naturally from two different types of apples in the orchard (the parent species still hasn’t been defined)! Nature truly is incredible.
If I could present an apple on a plate as a #BrunchWeek recipe, I would!
Instead, I decided (well, my husband had the idea) to try my hand at German apple pancakes. So, Mom and I took to it! And then we ate it! All.
German Apple Pancake
- 4 tbsp butter, divided use
- 3/4 C flour
- 3/4 C milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- 4 Lady Alice apples, sliced
- 1/3 C Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Place flour, milk, salt, baking powder, and eggs in a blender. Blend. Let rest 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 2 8″ or 9″ round cake pans.
- Place 2 tbsp butter in each pan. Put in the oven a few minutes, just until the butter has melted. Remove from the oven.
- Divide apples between the two pans.
- Give the pancake batter a quick pulse and divide evenly over the apples.
- Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the pancakes. Bake 25 minutes, until puffed and set.
