Walker Brothers Pancake House is a staple here in the Chicago-land area. Growing up, this is where I met my girlfriends for breakfast on every late start of high school, is is where I drove to for the first time after getting my license when I turned 16 and it also happens to be where Bri likes to have brunch on his birthday! Now that we live in the city, it is more difficult to make it all the way out for brunch, so I decided to bring brunch to us! I got out my 12 inch cast iron skillet and made a GIANT apple pancake, Walker Brother's style.
I found the recipe online and then adapted it a bit to fit my skillet and my taste. It turned out perfect! Happy Birthday Bri :)
Homemade Walker Brothers Apple Pancake
(adapted from Tastebook)
4 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
pinch of cloves
2 cups skim milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter
1. Preheat oven to 425.
2. In a large bowl, toss the apple slices with the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
3. In another large bowl, whisk the milk with the eggs. Whisk in the flour until no more lumps remain and whisk in the vanilla.
4. In your skillet, melt the butter. Add in the apple mixture and then pour the batter over the apples. Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes. Place a pan on a shelf below your skillet to prevent anything from dripping onto the bottom of your oven.
