Bickfords Big Apple PancakeMay 19, 2008 at 10:19 pm | Posted in Breakfast, Fruit | 17 Comments
If you’re from New England or at least Massachusetts you’ve probably been to Bickford’s at least once in your life for their breakfast all day and no trip to Bickford’s is complete without a Big (or more likely Baby) Apple a la mode! On their website they describe it simply “Our specialty. It takes a little longer, but is worth it!” I think that pretty much says it all.
I don’t like standard pancakes but, give me crepes or a Bickford’s Big Apple (German Pancake) and I am a happy girl! Basically the Big Apple is a thick pancake covered with cinnamon sugar apples and it’s just divine! Top it with your favorite vanilla ice cream and you have the best bad for you breakfast EVER!
I found this recipe online and half way through cooking it I realized it needed more brown sugar sprinkled on top so I added some more brown sugar and cinnamon to make it perfect. I would also change the cook temp to 400 instead of 425 and I did cook it a teeny bit longer than 15 minutes.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pam (for coating pie pan) – I used a cake 9″ cake pan
Spray pie pan with Pam or other cooking spray.
Combine flour, milk, and eggs.
Pour melted margarine in 9-inch pie plate. Pour batter into pan.
Combine apple slices, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Place evenly over batting in pie pan.
Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 minutes.
