Also commonly known as Danish pancakes, these little balls of pancake-y goodness offer a burst of apple inside. They're delicious prepared and served plain; but we like rolling them in sugar, plain or flavored, for added kick.

Ingredients

Filling

Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup boiled cider
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, optional

Topping

  • Snow White Non-Melting Topping Sugar, glazing sugar, confectioners' sugar, Cinnamon-Sugar Plus, or cinnamon sugar

Tips from our bakers

  • If you don't have a stuffed pancake pan, or just prefer traditional pancakes, simply mix the apple filling and an additional 2 to 4 tablespoons of milk into your batter, and drop the batter by 1/4-cupfuls onto a preheated griddle or pan. Cook the pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until evenly golden brown.

Directions

1) To make the filling: Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. When the butter foams, add the remaining ingredients.

2) Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened slightly. Remove the pan from the heat and cool while you prepare the batter.

3) To make the batter: Whisk together the dry ingredients.

4) Combine the remaining ingredients; add to the dry mixture, stirring just until moistened. Don't over-mix; the batter should be lumpy.

5) Heat and lightly grease your stuffed pancake pan. Don't have a stuffed pancake pan? See tip at left.

6) Pour about a scant tablespoon of batter into each well. Place a scant teaspoon of the filling into the middle of each, then top with another scant tablespoon of batter.

7) Cook the stuffed pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, flip, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

8) Remove from the pan, roll in the sugar of your choice, and serve warm.

  • I didn't have the special pan so I followed the tip to mix apples and batter together. I found that I did not need the extra milk. The pancakes came out delicious! I did not have the pie filling enhancer, just added a teaspoon of sugar. I used 2 small macs.

  • These are YUMMY! And wow does my kitchen smell great! I don't have the electric stuffed pancake maker, so I made them in a cupcake tin and baked them at 400 for around 15 minutes. It made a dozen. The only adjustment I would make is either using less tart apples (I used Granny Smith), or using the tart apples but adding a little brown sugar to the apple mix. Other than that, so good! That boiled cider is my new favorite thing.
