This is one of my favorite breakfast for dinner dishes. Everyone leaves my house at different times of the morning so breakfast is just whatever you decide to grab. Because of that I try to make breakfast for dinner at least twice a month if not once a week.

One of the reasons I love this recipe so dearly is it is one large pancake baked in the oven. I am not chained to the stove making a dozen or so individual pancakes. It is mixed together rather quickly with just a few ingredients and bakes for about 30 minutes which is weeknight perfect for most people.

This would also be fabulous brunch recipe. Whip up the pancakes and serve the warm apples and powdered sugar or whipped cream on the side. Scramble some eggs, make a fruit salad, maybe make the sausage breakfast bake and you have a wonderful spread for a holiday or other celebration brunch

You could also serve the pancake with just warm maple or buttermilk syrup and butter. It’s fabulous that way as well.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • powdered sugar for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, salt, eggs, and cream until smooth.
  3. Place butter in a 9X13 baking dish and put in the oven until the butter is melted which should take about four or five minutes.
  4. Pour melted butter into the batter and stir to combine.
  5. Pour batter into baking dish, return to oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. If you are afraid of your baking dish shattering from pouring cool batter into a hot dish remove the dish before you start mixing the batter. It should cool enough by the time the batter is ready to lessen the chances of shattering or you can melt the butter separately. You'll have to butter or spray the dish before hand that way though.
  6. Meanwhile place apple pie filling in a small saucepan on stove and heat until warmed through.
  7. Cut pancake into eighths and place two pieces on each plate. Top with pie filling and dust with powdered sugar for garnish if so desired. The recipe serves four but can easily be cut in half. Just cook in an 8X8 pan instead of a 9x13.
