Gluten Free Apple Puff Pancake

Hot out of the oven, crispy and sweet, covered with whipped cream.. What could be better?
 German Puff Pancakes or Dutch Babies are something that our family was just recently introduced to.  My daughter was visiting a friend and she brought home the recipe for a puff pancake with a sausage filling.  (Which I will share in a future post)  I modified the recipe, made it gluten free and added some apples and cinnamon to give you a wonderful Mothers Day treat!
For Mothers Day I wanted to share a poem with you that was special to my Mom:
Live Each Day To The Fullest 
By S.H. Payer
Live each day to the fullest. Get the most from each hour, each day, and each age of your life.  Then you can look forward with confidence and back without regrets.
Be yourself - but be your best self.  Dare to be different and to follow your own star.
And don't be afraid to be happy.  Enjoy what is beautiful.  Love with all your heart and soul.  Believe that those you love, love you.
Forget what you have done for your friends and remember what they have done for you.  Disregard what the world owes you and concentrate on what you owe the world.
When you are faced with a decision, make that decision as wisely as possible - then forget it.  The moment of absolute certainty never arrives.
And above all, remember that God helps those who help themselves.  Act as if everything depended on you, and pray as if everything depended on God.

Gluten Free Apple Puff Pancake 

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cooking apples (Spartan or Macintosh)
  • 3/4 cup Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum 
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. cane sugar or honey 
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a cast iron skillet melt butter over medium heat.  Peel and slice apples, sauté them in butter for 5 minuets, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl or blender.  Blend until smooth.  (I use an immersion blender in a mixing bowl)  pour the batter all at once into the hot skillet with the butter and apples.  Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until pancake is set and slightly browned.  Serve immediately with sweetened whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.
