Sunday mornings have always been my big breakfast day. I have a couple go-to recipes, but I was looking for something new and easy to make. That’s when I tried making baked apple pancakes!
It was delicious! My husband has asked me to make them multiple times now, even for dessert! They aren’t your typical pancake, they are thin, but poofy at the same time. And the sweetness of the apple ties it together making it super delicious.
The one thing I love about making this recipe in the mornings is that I am always able to make my pancake mix, put all my ingredients away and clean up a little bit all while the apples are baking. Then while the pancake is baking I can set the table and finish cleaning up! I love being able to get multiple things done at one time, especially as a mom.
So, if you are looking to mix up your breakfast routine this week here you go:
Looking for the Ingredients & Directions Quickly? Scroll to the bottom of the page.
Preheat your oven to 425° & get out your casserole dish. My casserole dish is 11×15, but you can use a smaller size. Just make sure its deep, the pancake will poof up. You could also use a deep cast iron skillet.
Melt your butter, about 30 seconds in the microwave or in a pan on the stove-top. While the butter is melting, peel, core, and slice your apples. You want the slices to be thin. I use Granny smith apples, but any baking apple should be just fine.
Once your butter is melted pour it into your casserole dish & add the apple slices. Toss your apples in the butter. Make an even layer of apples in your casserole dish and place it in your preheated oven for 10 minutes.
While your apples are baking, mix your milk and eggs together in a bowl, then add your sugar OR honey, vanilla extract, and flour. Mix well. You will probably see little “bubbles” of flour, this is ok! Next mix in your cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.
Your batter will not look like normal pancake mix, it will be runny, if your mix looks thick, you can add 1 tablespoon of water at a time. You don’t want it to be super runny.
Once your apples have baked for 10 minutes, take them out of the oven. Toss them around in the butter one last time and add your pancake mix evenly across the casserole dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
You’ll know when your pancake is done, when the sides are a little crispy looking, and has fluffed up quite a bit! You can also use the fork test, poke the pancake with a fork if it comes out clean it’s done.
Garnish with powdered sugar & enjoy a delicious breakfast or dessert (add a scoop ice cream)!!
4 tbsp. butter
3 apples of your choice, I use granny smith
1 Cup milk
3 tbsp. Sugar OR 1 Tbsp. Honey

Powdered sugar to garnish

Step One: Melt your butter. While the butter is melting peel, core, and slice your apples thin.
Step Two: Pour the melted butter into the casserole dish, toss your apples with the butter.
Step Three: Bake apples for 10 minutes
Step Four: Mix your milk and eggs together in a bowl, add your sugar OR honey, vanilla extract, and flour. Mix well- you will probably still see little “bubbles” of flour, this is ok! Next mix in your cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.
If your mix is thick you can add one tablespoon of water at a time until it’s slightly runny.
Step Five: Once your apples are done cooking, take your casserole out of the oven & pour the batter evenly into your casserole dish.
