So I’ve recently been in a BLW rut and decided to start trying recipes that are present in two baby cookbooks I own. This recipe is from “The Baby Bistro Cookbook” by Joohee Muromcew. I happened to have the ingredients on hand but also tried a few substitutions.
Overall, the pancake was quite yummy. E enjoyed the apples more but still ate a little of the pancake. E used to love pancakes but now is very “meh” about them. She will eat them, but not as heartily as before. I still serve them anyways because I like them.
Anyway, here is the recipe along with my modifications.
Puffy Apple Pancake
(taken and adapted from “The Baby Bistro Cookbook” by Joohee Muromcew)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced (according to the author you can also use any other fruit you have on hand)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup plain yogurt
- ½ teaspoon salt
*I added ¾ cup buttermilk in place of the milk and yogurt.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F
- In an ovenproof skillet (I used my cast iron pan), melt the butter. Then add the apples, sugar and cinnamon. Cook till apples are soft.
- In another bowl, mix together the eggs then add the flour, milk, yogurt (or buttermilk to replace the milk and yogurt), and salt. Mix well until nice and smooth.
- Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 20-30 minutes till pancake is light golden and slightly puffy.
- Remove the pancake from the oven, let it cool for 3 minutes then cut into wedges and serve.
