The Mach Diner

I'd been wanting to try out a recipe for German pancakes for a couple weeks now, but we'd been so busy with travelling for leisure, travelling for work, packing and unpacking, and generally having no time to do so. Well finally, on this third day of our long weekend, I whipped up the motivation (and a batch of batter) to give it a whirl. I present to you: German Pancakes with cinnamon apples topped with icing sugar a la mode. Garnish with market fresh blackberries.


1 tsp canola oil
2 large eggs
3 large egg whites
2/3 cups flour
2/3 cups milk
1 tsp butter

Cinnamon Apples
1 tbsp butter
3-4 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored, cut into slices)
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
icing sugar (as much as you like)
Ice Cream

1. Heat oven to 450 deg. F
2. Grease pie pan, heat in oven for 5 mins.
3. Process eggs, egg whites, flour, milk, and butter in food processor until well blended.
4. Pour batter into hot pan, bake 20 mins. Reduce temp to 350 deg. F, and bake 10 mins or until puffy.
5. Prepare apples in skillet - melt butter, add apples, sugar, apple juice, and cook uncovered over medium heat for 10 mins until apples are soft (I like mine mushy, so add more time).
6. Cut pancakes into pie slices, top with apples, and dust liberally with icing sugar. Serve a la mode. Garnish with fresh fruit.
