Appel Pannenkoek - (Dutch Apple Pancakes With Caramelized Sugar)

This is so healthy and refreshing with the caramelized tangy green apples and cinnamon flavor as topping! DELICIOUS is one word to describe this Dutch pancake. A simply light and easy pancake for the young and old.  Easy to disgest and yet simply delicious.  Even a twelve year old can whip this up :) 


Appel Pannenkoek / Pannekoek - taken from Almost Bourdain
(Dutch Apple Pancakes with Caramelized Sugar)


1 cup (200g) flour

½ tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 eggs
2 apples(Granny Smith)
lemon juice
caster sugar
cinnamon sugar


Peel and core the apples and slice them thinly. Turn them in lemon juice so they retain their color.

Combine the flour with the baking powder and salt, and add enough cold water to make a thick batter. Stir in the eggs.

Heat a little butter in a non-stick pan and spoon in the batter.

Immediately arrange the apple slices like tiles on top of the pancake. Sprinkle with sugar and cook until the pancake is brown.

Using a dinner plate or pot lid, carefully turn the pancake over so that the apples cook and the sugar caramelizes.

Turn once again, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve hot.

Happy Deepavali to all my Hindu friends and readers :)
