Mmm! This looks like something I'd get at my favorite breakfast restaurant back home. Might have to give it a try!

I have made this over and over again using apples as in this recipe and changing out the fruit for whatever is fresh and in season -- strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas, etc and often mix fruits. It is always delicious and so very easy to make. Live this kind of pancake! I've also made it in a cast iron skillet when cake pans were not available.

Looks SO DELICIOUS !!!!!!

Could the apple mixture be placed on top of the pancake batter and bake it all together?

I want to know this also. It would be more like the ones you can get in restaurants if the apples were baked with the batter.

Unfortunately, the apple mixture cannot be placed on the batter and then baked as it would not bake correctly.

If the readers are so concerned with calorie and nutrition counts there are many, many free sites that will calculate that for you. First clue though is the amount of fat and sugar listed. If it seems like a lot-it probably is. I am a type II diabetic and I certainly know about what I can have or not. There are also many recipe sites that feature healthy choices.

So easy to prepare and so delicious. I also liked the short cooking time, I already have all the ingredients listed on hand, and you can make it savory or sweet. I will make this recipe over and over again using different toppings so it never gets old.

I often wonder why people gripe about the fact that calorie count and nutritional values are not posted on this website. The recipies are free and I haven't made one yet that I didn't like. If these things are an issue for you, look at what the recipe is for and what ingredients it takes to make it. It only requires a little common sense and you must know what you should and should not eat. Moderation is the key.


I would imagine there's a high calorie count and it doesn't appear to me very nutritional,,,,, but it's delicious.


Would also like to know the calorie count on your recipes. Thank you!

where is the calorie count for all the recipes?

Hello. I am not able to access RecipeLion from my home computer. Should I contact the service provider for this?

I really appreciate the recipes even - if they are not the "real" ones! Keep all of them coming.....THANKS!!!

to use fresh apples it would be simple to peel about 3-5 apples (washed), core & siice into about 8 pieces each apple, turn into skillet wih melted butter, add approx 1/3 cup sugar according to kind and sweetness of variety, plus 1tbsp of starch (to thicken slighty), and cook over medium heat until tender, then spread over cooked pancakes. Fresh apples would enhance flavor sooo much!

It doesn't matter that this is not the official "Dutch Apple Pancake. I have made them that way for years, however, this recipe is very versatile and can be used in many different ways with different fillings. I tried it and I like it. Thanks and keep those recipes coming.

I enjoy all the recipes that you send out, but it would be GREAT if you would list the calorie count for the people that are watching there weight. Larry

This is nothing more than a baked pancake with a topping; it is NOT a reall Dutch Apple pancake. For the real McCoy, core a large raw apple, cut it into thin wedges, peel the wedges and place them in a pinwheel pattern on top of the batter Before baking. My own recipe uses a can of Carnation evaporated milk rather than whole milk and sprinkling the top with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar before baking. Nutritionally, you really do NOT want all that sugar that would be added by using canned apples and confectioners sugar.

what would be a substitute for fresh apples vs. canned apples, yuk
