BLW: Puffy Apple Pancake

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.


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 20-30 minutes till pancake is light golden and slightly puffy.
  5. Remove the pancake from the oven, let it cool for 3 minutes then cut into wedges and serve.
