I have to be honest with you, I am not the greatest fan of American pancakes. I know. It’s a tough thing to hear. You’d think I have lived here long enough to have learned to love them. Indeed, every now and then, I’ll get a craving for them, but in general, I am not big into the fluffiness and the maple syrup-soaking. Meh.
German pancakes (= thicker French crêpes), however? My favorite.
They’re super-easy to make, you only need three ingredients (four, if you count the fruit that I like to put in mine, but you can also put jam or just sugar and cinnamon on top) and they’re ready in no time.
2 cups flour
2 cups of milk
apples (peeled and sliced)
(optionally you can also use plums, cherries,
peaches or any other kind of fruit that hits your fancy)
* * *
cinnamon and sugar (to sprinkle on top)
Mix the ingredients together. Heat a pan and spray with canola spray. Pour in the batter and then layer with apples slices and push them in a little bit so that they’re really imbedded in the batter. When the batter solidifies, flip on the other side and bake until golden brown.
Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
