Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake Recipe

Y’all know those folks in Holland have brought many innovations to us that are delicious. The amazing pancake is one that falls into this category. I have taken a stolen recipe and “Bubba-ized” it just so I can call it my own. He He He He. OK let’s roll up our sleeves, take off our rings, wash our hands and get cooking.

Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake


  • 2 cans apple pie filling (your favorite brand)
  • ½ stick room temp butter (4 Tablespoons) Butter is better
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon instant Tapioca
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon cream (use what you put in your coffee)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Powdered Sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 375. Put apple pie filling, room temp butter, cinnamon, Instant Tapioca into a 10″ deep iron skillet or Dutch oven (take a look at our best dutch oven cookbooks). Warm on stove top and stir till fully incorporated. I know it smells grand try to not sample more than a spoon full. In a bowl whip eggs till they are frothy. Whisk in cream, sour cream, flour and salt. It is OK if it’s a bit lumpy. Pour this mixture over the fruit mixture. Slide into preheated oven and bake 25-30min or till golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar as soon as you remove it from oven. Allow to stand 5 min before serving. Spoon onto individual serving plates and dust a 2nd time before serving. Best served warm. Whipped topping would be a decadent enhancement. You’re shocked I didn’t put garlic in it aren’t ya.

This will serve 4-6 folks. I feel the leftovers make a great meal the 2nd day re-heated in the microwave. This recipe works well with cherry pie filling or Blue Berry Pie filling. I would eliminate the cinnamon for these two. The choice is yours….or make all three.

Make a fresh pot of Colombian Coffee to serve in the best coffee urn and invite your friends for a feast. Make some fresh squeezed juice or at least squeeze the carton. Perhaps you would prefer a quiet candle light diner for two. Put a little mood music in the CD player, Turn off the lights, lite a few candles, slip into your favorite red Teddy enhanced with the fish net stockings and the fuzzy red slippers and enjoy the romance. However you choose to serve this, make it soon. You deserve a great meal today….
