This easy & delicious gluten-free Dutch apple pancake is so delicious you won’t be able to tell it from the original. A filling apple-packed breakfast for brunch or a houseful of company.
I have always wondered how they make those puffed up Pennsylvania Dutch apple pancakes and wanted to duplicate it at home. I wanted it simple but I also had to make it gluten-free since I was having my daughter over for breakfast. That added to my challenge to make it easy but delicious to fit her special diet.
I knew I wanted to use coconut flour or all-purpose gluten-free flour and, luckily, have become quite proficient at cooking with these flours since publishing our gluten-free cookbook, The Pregnancy Cookbook, this year. By the way, our cookbook is a great resource for a gluten-free AND heart-healthy diet whether you are pregnant or not. I found that adding xanthan gum to recipes using these gluten-free flours works as well as if you were using just your normal everyday all-purpose flour.
Secondly, most recipes used a cast iron skillet. I don’t own one yet so, if you are in the same boat I am, this recipe uses a standard 11 x 7-inch baking dish and comes out just as delicious.
There are a few steps involved but they’re not hard and browning the apples is well worth the extra few minutes. It’s a great recipe to make when you have a crowd over for breakfast or add it to a spectacular brunch menu. It is definitely sweet, filling and oh so delicious.
