Maple Apple Pancake

Scott Phillips

Servings: three to four.

This easy custardy dessert (or breakfast) is a twist on a traditional French dish called a clafoutis, which is often made with cherries.


  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature if possible)
  • 1-1/4 oz. (1/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. (3/4 oz.) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 large firm eating apple (I like Gala), cored and thinly sliced
  • Cinnamon sugar or confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon for dusting

  • Heat the oven to 425°F. Combine the eggs, flour, cream, maple syrup, and salt in a blender. Blend on high to combine well. Melt the butter in an 8-inch (measured across the top of the pan) heavy-duty ovenproof nonstick skillet (such as an omelet pan) over medium heat. Add the apple slices and sauté until soft and slightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Whiz the batter in the blender again until frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour the batter into the skillet (coax a few apples back to the center of the pan with a heatproof spatula), let the skillet sit for just a few seconds, and transfer it to the oven. Bake until the pancake is puffed, golden, and set, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the skillet and let the pancake cool for a few minutes in the pan (it will deflate). Slide a flexible spatula or two under it and transfer to a cutting board. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar or confectioners’ sugar and a little cinnamon, cut into wedges, and serve warm.

    After reading the previous reviews I decided to double the recipe for my family of 3.5. I peeled the apples (I used two smaller ones). I doubled everything except for the maple syrup - I used less than 1/2 a cup. Still It was way to sweet for us. The recipe worked perfectly doubled. I cooked it in a 12" pan for the same amount of time. I will definitely make again but with only a tablespoon or two of maple syrup in a 2x recipe.
