Apple Finnish Pancake

I am partial to any recipe that calls itself a Finnish Pancake. I once lived in Thunder Bay, Ont. and often dined at The Hoito, a place famous for its Finnish pancakes. This recipe isn't anything like those pancakes, but it is easy and a nice alternative to serve for breakfast. I do have a good recipe for the type of pancakes served at The Hoito, but I will save it for another time.


2 cups apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tbsp butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup of flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Place apples and butter in baking dish and toss to coat. Bake in the oven for five minutes, or untiil the apples soften slightly.
  3. Meanwhile whisk together eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
  5. Pour egg mixture over cooked apples. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until pancake is puffed and browned.
