This is our first year doing a geography program. Well, other than what we do for history. During the first week of school, Katie studied Denmark. And we discovered a series of books about the countries of the world - and they each have a few recipes in them. You should have seen us in the library last week, pulling out all the books to look at the recipes. And trying to decide what country should come next. Because curriculum should be based on taste buds.
When I posted my week in review, I asked the burning question: "do you want to learn how to make Æblepandekager?" And the clamor for the recipe has been deafening. The ringing in my ears keeps me up at night. And all the emails demanding that I share the recipe. I am so sorry that I could not respond to each of you individually. So, without further ado, Karen, thanks for asking, and here is the recipe...
Our cast of characters:
½ cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup cream
3 apples -- peeled & sliced
1 lemon -- juice only
Beat the eggs lightly. Add the milk.
Combine the flour, sugar and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture, stirring in the ½ cup of cream as you mix.
Fry the apple slices in butter in a skillet.
Cover the bottom of an oven-proof baking dish, or heavy skillet, with apples.
Pour the batter over slices and bake in a preheated 500º oven.
When nearly done (20 or 25 minutes, or until the pancake looks like a cooked omelet), remove from oven and sprinkle here and there with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon to taste. Place dabs of butter on the pancake and return to oven until browned.
Just before serving, sprinkle with lemon juice.
So...what about you? Do you ever try recipes you read on blogs? Do you have a favorite that you have discovered from blogland? Have you ever made any of my recipes?
