5 easy Steps to make an Apple Pancake in a cast iron pan

The engineer celebrated his 30th birthday a few days ago. It was a special day, because turning 30 means “the adults” expect you to be an adult now. He had a Birthday Bash a few days before his actual Birthday and I had no present. I thought of giving him an ice maker as an extra present. My purse didn’t want that, so I decided to bake something for my sweet engineer.

He loves Applestrudel and Fortuna was in my favour. I found a Blog called Zucker Zimt und Liebe. It’s a foodblog and Jeanny the girl behind Zucker Zimt und Liebe writes her posts with a funny twist. Although I wouldn’t try everything, because I’m not good at baking it’s a treat to read her posts. It happened to be 2 days before the engineers Birthday Jeanny blogged a recipe for an puffed pancake. You need to know that the engineer LOVES everything what tastes remotely almost like an applestrudel. I checked the ingredients and gave it a go on his Birthday. My one is a little different from Jeanny’s on Zucker Zimt und Liebe, but as I told you before I’m not good at baking.


  • 1 Apple (sliced)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 175ml Milk
  • 125g Flour
  • 2 TbSp Brown Sugar
  • A pinch of Salt
  • ¼ TSp grounded Cinnamon
  • 1 ½ TbSp Butter (diced)
  • Icing Sugar and Almond Flakes
  1. Place a rost in your oven and preheat it to 200° C top-/bottom heat.
  2. Put the butter in a cast iron pan and pop it into the oven to melt it.
  3. Take the pan out and put the sliced apples into the pan and sprinkle some of the brown sugar over it. Put it back in the oven.
  4. While the apples caramelize, take all the other ingredients and give them a good mix with the electric mixer.
  5. Pour the dough carefully over the caramelized apples and put it back in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Garnish your Apple Pancake with icing sugar and almond flakes and serve it warm.

When the engineer came home from work, I surprised him with the Apple Pancake. He ate almost half of it on one go, so I guess he liked it.

Thanks to Zucker Zimt und Liebe.

  1. That looks really tasty, and super simple. I’ll have to try it myself. There are a lot of apple cinnamon recipes floating around at the moment. Yesterday, I came across a video of how to make apple roses with sliced apple, pastry and cinnamon. They were really simple and looked great, worth a quick YouTube search. Just stumbled across this post and thought I’d say hello. X
