How do I make a Bavarian Apple Schmarren?


Pancakes are very popular in Germany. You'll love this variety with apples.
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbs. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
Sift first 3 ingredients together in a bowl, set aside. Combine next 2 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir in flour mixture gradually & beat smooth. Combine sugar & cinnamon in a bowl, set aside. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Saute apples 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until just tender. Toss cinnamon mixture with apples. Melt 1 Tbs. butter in a heavy 6 inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add pancake batter to about 1/4 inch depth. Cook 1 minute. Sprinkle 1/4 of the apples over batter. Pour enough batter over the top to just cover apples. Cook Eierkuchen until bottom is lightly browned. Turn & cook 1-2 minutes more. Keep warm until ready to serve. Repeat process with remaining batter and apples. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup. Serves 4 people.
