Pannekoeken! (With Apples, of Course.)

Years and years and years ago, my older brother brought a Pannekoeken recipe home from his 8th grade home economics class. Ever since, this recipe has been a staple in our home. I actually prefer the recipe plain, without any fruit. But every once in awhile ... when I'm feeling really adventurous, I'll add diced apples to the mix.

Over the years, Joel has tried to improve the recipe by adding sugars or different fruit varieties, or what-have-you. In my humble opinion, he has never actually improved it.

Here's the recipe:


3 eggs
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. milk
3 T butter

Preheat the oven at 450 degrees.

Mix the eggs, flour, and milk. This is also where you would add apples, or what-have-you.

Melt the butter and pour into glass pie dish (or whatever works for you), making sure the butter coats the dish. Then pour the pannekoeken mix over the butter.

Cook for 15-20 minutes. Pannekoeken should be golden brown on top.

Enjoy with syrup, jam, powdered sugar, etc.


  1. yummm....we LOVE pannekoeken and I can't wait to try this. My only question, do you pour the melted butter in the dish and then the other stuff or does the butter go in with the other stuff and then in the dish? Am I making any sense!?

  2. Yes, you are making sense. You also helped me realize I missed a step. You pour the butter into the dish, and then the rest of the mix over it. I went back and edited the recipe. Thanks!

  3. We always had these with lemon and powdered sugar when I was little, but we called them Dutch Babies. No idea if they're the same thing but the recipe seems the same...


  5. Love the pannekouken, one of the more edible things we made in home-ec. They used to have pannekouken restaurants up in MN, I haven't seen on in years. Yummy, I'm gonna make this for the fam, they've never heard of it.
