(German Apple Pancakes)
When my dear Imke first made this Apfelpfannkuchen recipe for me, I knew I had to add it to my site. These German apple pancakes are a delicious treat at any time of the day, but do make for a particularly wonderful breakfast.
Tastes will vary when it comes to how well to fry the apple slices. I prefer them darkly fried around the edges, so I give them some time before adding the batter on top of them. Keep in mind that they will continue to cook as the batter does, so don‘t let them get to dark on their own, or they my burn while you wait for the pancake to set.
Flipping these pancakes is made much easier if you are careful to leave space between your apple slices to avoid creating weak seams in the cooking batter. Whether you use a wide spatula to flip, or just a flick of the wrist, is up to you.
