German Apple Pancake

I got my new cooking light magazine in the mail the other day and right on the cover this delious looking recipe. I have to say their picture looked much better than mine but it was good..Does it really matter what it looks like if it tastes good?

I didnt have a 10 inch pan so i had to use my 12 inch pan. I'm not sure if that was a problem or not. it was very fluffy pancake but tastey. Brad said it would make a good dessert too.


1/2 cup all-purpose flour (about 2 1/4 ounces)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt (i omitted)

1/8 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg

1 cup egg substitute (I didn't have any egg substitute, so i use 3 reg eggs, this might have caused a problem, i will try it next time with the substitute and see if it comes out different)

1 cup fat-free milk

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Apple mixture:

Cooking spray 1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg

1 cup thinly sliced Granny Smith apple

Remaining ingredient: 1 tablespoon powdered sugar


1. To prepare batter, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine egg substitute, milk, butter, and vanilla in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add egg substitute mixture to flour mixture, stirring with a whisk. Let stand 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 425°.
3. To prepare apple mixture, coat bottom and sides of a 10-inch ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg; sprinkle evenly over bottom and sides of pan. Arrange apple in an even spokelike layer in pan. Sprinkle apple with remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until mixture bubbles. Slowly pour batter over apple mixture.
4. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375° (do not remove pancake from oven); bake an additional 13 minutes or until center is set. Carefully loosen pancake with a spatula. Gently slide pancake onto a serving platter. Sift powdered sugar over top. Cut into 6 wedges; serve immediately.

6 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

You're a much better subscriber than I am! I have my Cooking Light mag in my work bag and have yet to skim through it. Glad you made the apple pancake featured on the cover - it looks great!
