THE Bickford’s Apple pancake brings only good memories. Actually Bickford’s in general brings back great memories. I have spent many mornings there with family and many late nights there with friends. Bickford’s is the North East’s Cracker Barrel. I have to say though Cracker Barrel is realllly good. Thank goodness I don’t live near one…
The apple pancake is called a Dutch baby and the German apple pancake. I really don’t care what they call it I LOVE it! You can easily put it over the top and add warm maple syrup….mmmmm. I do think that cooking this in a cast iron pan is essential. It took 25 minutes from start to table which is great for me for a weekend breakfast. For the pancake shown below it was for a dinner, which, having breakfast for dinner is always a fantastic ending to a day.
I think that the recipe is for a 6-8” pan, I did this in a 10” pan and I think it came out a bit too thin. Other than it being a little thin this tasted VERY much like what I remember at the restaurant.
I cut the apple really thin and it was cooked perfectly.
The source for this recipe is supposed to be from Bickford’s restaurant and I have to say I believe it!
