This is a simple—and very good dessert—to make. We made a simple pannekoeken. Then we sautéed the apples on the stovetop and added them to slices of pannekoeken. Finally, we topped them with ice cream.
For the Pannekoeken
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 large eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- Place the butter in a Dutch Baby pan or an ovenproof skillet with rounded sides.
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Put the rack in the center, not the top, shelf.
- When you turn the oven on, place the pan with the butter in the oven.
- When the oven reaches 250 degrees the butter should be melted. Remove the pan from the oven.
- Whisk the eggs and the salt in a medium bowl.
- Add the milk. Whisk in the flour until nearly smooth. Your batter is now ready.
- Pour the batter into the pan.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the top starts to turn golden brown.
For the topping
- 2 or 3 medium cooking apples
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup walnut pieces
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Mix the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Add the apples and walnuts. Set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
- Add the apple mixture and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the apples are nearly tender and the syrup is bubbly.
To serve: While still hot, cut the pannekoeken into wedges. Scoop apple topping and ice cream onto the wedges and serve.
