Apfel Pfannkuchen

A German apple pancake recipe from the days before boxed pancake mix.

Makes 24 small pancakes

1-1/4 cups milk
1 egg
1-1/2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. melted butter
3 apples, peeled and grated
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Beat the milk and egg together. Mix gradually into the flour and salt and continue mixing until blended. Beat in the melted butter. Strain through a sieve to remove any lumps. Let stand for 1 hour.
Combine the apples, cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice.
Drop tablespoons of the batter on a greased heated griddle and top with a little of the apple mixture. Cook until the batter loses its shine, turn over and cook other side.
Serve piping hot, sprinkled with sugar.

This looks yummy, and not too difficult.

Sounds like something to be eaten with either Black Forest ham or Italian proscuitto.

My German mom mixes everything together before she drops a large spoonful on the griddle. In her part of Germany, these pancakes are served with a hearty homemade potato soup.

Guten appetit from Heidelberg!!
