I absolutely love BREAKFAST. Oh, it is the best meal of the day. I love the sizzling warm bacon, the crispy ham, eggs on toast, pecan pancakes, french toast, croissants, fresh whipped cream, hot mouth watering syrup, Belgium waffles with fresh fruit. I really could go on and on. But my favorite, is GeRmAn PaNcaKeS! What is great about this recipe is it is easy and taste just as good at home as in a restaurant.
I love to make my german pancakes with caramelized apples making them absolutely delicious. Start by putting 2 Tbls. of butter into a 9" pie pan and placing in oven while it preheats to 415 degrees. Once the butter has melted you must remove pan from oven or butter will burn when oven is preheated.
To cArAmElIzE ApPlEs: cut, peel and slice half an apple and place in small sauce pan. Add 2Tbls. butter, white sugar, brown sugar and cook on high for about 8 minutes. You will have to watch and stir the apples so they don't burn, but cooking them on high will make them cArAmElIzE!!!
BaTtEr: in a small bowl, add 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup of milk. 1/2 cup of flour. Whisk and set aside.
While you are making your batter your apples should be looking like this: Delicious!!
Place batter into pie pan, then place apples on top of batter. Cook for 12-15 minutes. Sides of pancake should be brown and puffed(like picture at top). Add syrup or powdered sugar to sweeten. Devourer immediately. This serving is for one person maybe two.
