Dutch apple pancakes
2 tbsp butter
A pinch of salt
Icing sugar (optional)
For the topping
100g brown sugar, packed
1½ tsp cinnamon
⅓ tsp nutmeg
3 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
6 tbsp butter
1 Preheat the oven to 210C/425F/gas mark 7. Put the butter into an ovenproof frying pan or dish and slide into the oven to melt.
2 Meanwhile, prepare your batter by beating the eggs in a large bowl. Add the salt, milk, and flour, then continue to beat until smooth.
3 When the butter has melted, swirl the pan to coat it, then pour in the batter. Bake for about 15-18 minutes without opening the oven door. The pannekoeken is ready when it is browned and crisp around the edges.
4 To make the apple topping, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Add the apples to the bowl and mix gently to coat, then set aside.
5 In a large saucepan, gently melt the butter then add the apple mixture and cook over a medium heat until the apples are tender. Spoon over the hot pannekoeken, sprinkle with icing sugar, cut into wedges, and serve.
