German Apple Pancakes presented by Yellowstone Country Bed & Breakfast Email this page to a Friend

2 large pancakes serve 4 people

4 eggs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
2 medium apples thinly sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Place 2 round pans (I use pie plates) in oven which has been heated to 400 degrees.

Beat eggs, flour, milk and salt together for 1 minute.

Remove pans from oven. Place 2 tablespoons butter in each pan and rotate pans until butter is melted and coats sides of pans.

In each pan arrange half of apple slices, divide the batter evenly and pour over apple slices. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over batter in each pan.

Bake until puffed and golden brown - about 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy with sausage and syrup for breakfast or with ice cream or whipping cream for dessert.

It is preferable to use a stone crock but any jar large enough to hold about 4 litres (2 gallons) will do.
Into the jar, put 1 small cup of warm water, 1 dessertspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, 2 teaspoons of compressed yeast dissolved in a little warm water.
Let it all stand for 24 hours. This is the 'plant'. After 24 hours, mix 1 small cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 cut up lemon, without the white pith.
Add enough hot water to dissolve the sugar, add cold water to make luke warm, then pour onto the plant.
Fill the jar right up, and leave for another 24 hours, then strain & bottle. Cork tightly. We used to tie the corks down with string, but screw tops will be satisfactory if put on with a very firm hand.

Now make up another mixture the same as you did after the first 24 hours, and pour over the plant.
Never leave the plant without adding to it, for more than 24 hours.
If the plant gets too hot it may be divided or thrown out.
Never have more than 6mm (1/4") to 12mm (1/2") of plant in the jar.
Make sure you have plenty of thoroughly clean bottles before you start.

Store bottles in a cool safe place & use the oldest lot first if another batch is done, the bottles can explode if left for months & get too warm.
If you divide the plant you can give the other half to a friend.

This is 'beer' what you are making right. A question, Don't you use a fermination valve on your container so oxygen doesn't get into the beer. You are useing sugar and yeast, this produces alcohol. If oxygen gets onto the beer then your brew will turn to vinegar.
Hi b1jqxk44,

We were given one of these plants & made our ginger beer as instructed,
I think it could turn to vinegar if left long enough, but we used it within a couple of months & it was ok. ;)

PS ... The person who gave it to me was a strict tea-totaller, so maybe she made it differently :p

I haven't had any Ginger Beer in years!! I love it. :D Won't attempt to make it but will find some after this reminder. Thank you.
Hi Poochee, :D
Yes it's a great drink, more refreshing than soft drinks, .... I make lemon cordial also & it's so much nicer than the too sweet bought stuff.
Ginger is good for settling the stomache,
Gingernuts can help ease the feeling of Morning Sickness
Also Travel sickness (for pets too, give your dog a gingernut to chew on)


Gingernut Biscuits
The English use golden syrup. Try it if you can find it at a specialty store.

1 cup unbleached flour
1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons maple syrup or golden syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sift flour, ginger and baking soda into a large mixing bowl, toss in the sugar, then lightly rub in the margarine with your fingertips until the mixture is crumbly. Add syrup and mix all together to form a stiff paste.

Divide paste into 16 equal pieces by cutting the mixture in half, then each half into halves and so on. Make sure that each cookie is the same size. Toll each piece into a ball between the palms of your hands. Place each ball on a large, lightly greased baking sheet, leaving plenty of room for each to expand. Using a wooden spoon, press down on each one to flatten it slightly. Put into the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until they are done.

Remove from the oven and leave on the sheet for a little while. Using a spatula, place each on a wire rack for final cooling. Eat immediately with vanilla ice cream or store in an airtight container.
