Serves 12



Quantity Ingredient
1/4 cup sugar, granulated
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt, granulated
2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups 1% milk
4 large eggs
3 – 4 Gala apples, large
2 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh
6 tbsp. butter, unsalted, cut into 12 pieces



  1. In a small bowl, mix sugar (1/4 cup) and cinnamon together – set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and the 2 tsp. of sugar.
  3. Add milk slowly, whisking. Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition.
  4. Peel and core the apples. Cut into 1/8″ thick slices and then 1/8″ matchsticks – toss in a bowl with lemon juice.
  5. Fold the apples and lemon juice into the batter.
  6. In a 6″ non-stick skillet, melt 1 piece of butter over moderate heat. Add 1/3 cup of the batter and spread it to cover the bottom of the pan.
  7. Cook, reducing the heat if it is browning too quickly. Turn the pancake over once until golden on both sides. This should take about minutes – total.
  8. Slide onto a platter and keep warm in the oven.
  9. Complete the batter in the same way, giving a total of about 12 pancakes.
  10. Sprinkle the tops of each pancake with some of the cinnamon and sugar just before serving.
