Yesterday, I made Apple Leather in my Excalibur Dehydrator. Last night I decided to make the Apple Oven Pancake by Dehydrater2Store. The recipe is in Episode 7. I was told by Tammy, the ownder of Dehydrate2Store , will be opening their own website within the next two weeks, so all of the recipes will be written down. 🙂
I try to buy apples when they go on sale for less than a dollar a pound. I usually have a few ziplock bags of dried apples in the freezer. I never bake with them. We would rather eat them as chips, but the Apple Oven Pancake looked too good to pass up.
I get out the dried apples. These are Granny Smiths, it is the only kind I bake with, but any apple is great as a chip. 🙂 I added just a little more, because I know that a few slices will disappear before I add the water for them to soak in. I was an eye-witness to their disappearance. Yep.
I add boiling water and wait 5 minutes.
Then I add other ingredients. Smells good… Notice the apples are not limp. They have soaked up the hot water, which makes them ready for the oven.
You have to bake the apples for a little bit before adding a batter topping. The apples come out a very nice color and smell really good.
I poured the dough over the apples and popped the pan back in the oven for a while. Because I did not use a tart pan, my baking time was longer than requested in the recipe.
After it bakes, it comes out all puffed up and pretty.
Just add some powdered sugar to the top and wah-lah a yummy breakfast/desert. 😀
I will make this again, but with a tart pan. This is my excuse to get one. 😀
