Baked Apple Pancakes

6 Sep


Do you often find yourself looking for something different and delicious for breakfast/dessert? Well look no further! Baked apple pancakes give you a sweet treat that can be enjoyed at ANY TIME OF THE DAY! This little dish was a childhood favorite in Emster’s home; Eric just likes eating them, no back story required. Also, they are a nice way to use up extra apples (hint hint almost time to go apple picking).


  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 T butter
  • 1.5 – 2 apples
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ t cinnamon

*This recipe serves 3-4 people and can easily be doubled.


1.) While the oven is preheating to 450F, put two tablespoons of butter into a 9 inch pan and place the pan into the oven to melt the butter. Cut up your apples into thin slices, as thin as you can slice them.

2.) Lightly beat the eggs, and add the flour and milk. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together.

3.) Once the butter is melted, arrange apple slices evenly on the bottom of the hot pan.

4.) Pour the egg mixture on top.

5.) Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the pan.

6.) Put right back into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until eggs are set. Serve immediately. Top with whipped cream or anything else you’d like.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

20 Jun



This is truly a delicious breakfast (or more commonly for us, afternoon snack) that is fairly simple to make. The recipe was taken from a basic muffin recipe used by Emster’s family, and adapted to include bananas and chocolate chips. These little beauties are the perfect combination of moist and fluffy, with a hint of banana and a ton of chocolate (when Emster is in charge of measuring the chips). Even our non-banana loving friend has tried and enjoyed these muffins!


  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
* This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Cooking Instructions:

1.) In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  After everything is mixed together, create a well in the center to pour in the wet ingredients.

2.) In a separate bowl, mash the bananas. Beat in the eggs, milk, oil, and OJ. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient well, and stir until just mixed. Add in chocolate chips (we know you want to).

3.) Beat in the eggs, milk, oil, and OJ. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient well, and stir until just mixed. Add in chocolate chips (if desired, so go ahead and add them!).

4.)Fill greased or lined muffin pans.

5.) Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and top of muffins is a nice golden color.
