Maple Crunch Apple Puff Pancake Recipe

Whether you refer to these oven-baked pancakes as Dutch babies, pannekoeken or simply puff pancakes, the combination of maple sweetness and tart autumn apples will make it hard to say no to.

My feet dangle beneath the checked tablecloth, swinging back and forth. A water glass sits in front of me, condensation clinging to the slick sides. Conversations happen over my head and the ceiling fan makes near silent whooshes as I fight the urge to wiggle in my seat lest I be reprimanded by my guardians. I pull on the front of my shirt so that I can see it away from my body, studying the screen printed mountains against the purple backdrop, the rainbow-colored lettering.

And then from the kitchen there are the singsong voices calling out the pancakes as they weave from the kitchen to our table held high above the servers’ heads puffed and glorious. There are some with whipped cream and berries and others with just a simple dusting of powdered sugar. The scent of eggy custard and vanilla overwhelms the table and sits right below my nose, drowning out all my other senses.

My favorite puff pancake, however, has and will forever be one with the apples cooked directly into the custard-like center. They shine on one side like stepping stones pressed into mortar, and if you were to flip the pancake to the other, you’d see the caramelized side, golden and brown, sticky with maple and butter.

I’ve taken this family favorite breakfast/brunch/brinner recipe and added a small bit of crunch to the top for contrast. The maple syrup in this puffed baby is enough, and they can be served without any extra toppings, just a fork and a napkin. If you’re looking for a larger volume of pancakes and don’t have enough small cast iron pans, growing up we would pour a double batch into a 13×9 pan instead.
