Baked Apple Pancake

This recipe is a gift from Michelle to the South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club. It is her mom’s recipe and it’s her family tradition to make this Baked Apple Pancake on Christmas morning while the kids are busy opening their gifts.


You can reduce the butter to 1/4 cup but it does change the consistency of the pancake slightly.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (only if using unsalted butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar




052-200x300Preheat oven to 425 degrees (400 for convection oven).

In a blender or large bowl, mix eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt (if using) and cinnamon.

0611-300x200Melt butter in a 9×13″ pan in oven. Add apple slices and return to oven until butter sizzles. Do not let brown.
