Otters Pond B&B Mini Dutch Apple Pancakes


Serves 3. 

4 eggs                  1 tsp. grated lemon zest

1 c. milk                       1 tsp. vanilla

1 c. flour                      1 Tbsp. sour cream

1/8 tsp. salt                   Confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Generously spray three 6 ½ ­inch cast iron frying pans with non-stick cooking spray.


2 Tbsp butter                   ¼ c. sugar

¼ tsp. ground  cloves   ¼ tsp. ground allspice

½ tsp. cinnamon         ½ c. dried cranberries

1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/8- inch slices.

In a separate sauté pan over medium heat, melt butter; add apple, granulated sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and cook, until apple begins to soften and brown lightly, 3­5 minutes.  Stir in cranberries.  Remove from heat and set aside. 

Batter: In a blender add eggs and milk; slowly add flour, salt, sour cream, vanilla and lemon zest.  Blend slowly 3 minutes until a smooth batter forms. Place 1 cup batter in each prepared pan. Spoon or hand place (plastic gloves) apple mixture on top of batter.

Bake until pancakes are puffed and golden brown, 15­20 minutes. Place on a warm plate and dust with confectioners’ sugar. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, warm syrup, and vanilla yogurt. Wonderful with Cajun sausage.
