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
- Place a rost in your oven and preheat it to 200° C top-/bottom heat.
- Put the butter in a cast iron pan and pop it into the oven to melt it.
- 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.
- While the apples caramelize, take all the other ingredients and give them a good mix with the electric mixer.
- Pour the dough carefully over the caramelized apples and put it back in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- 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.
