Shrove Tuesday – Zoom Pancake Dinner
February 16 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Tuesday, February 16 at 6:00-7:00 pm
Make your own pancakes and join Simone for a short dinner liturgy to mark the start of Lent. We will set intentions for this holy season and have a craft for our youngest Saints. If you do not already have your own traditional family Shrove Tuesday pancake recipe, Julie has kindly offered her own for us to try – it sounds delicious!
GERMAN APPLE PANCAKE
3 large eggs
3⁄4 cup milk
3⁄4 cup white flour
1⁄2 tsp. salt
1 1⁄2 Tbsp butter
1 lb. tart fresh apples
1⁄4 cup melted butter
1⁄4 cup sugar
Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Beat together eggs, milk, flour and salt until very smooth. In a heavy 12 “ skillet, melt 1 1⁄2 Tbsp of butter. When pan is quite hot, pour in batter and put the skillet in the oven.
After 15 minutes, lower oven to 350 degrees F and continue baking for another 10 minutes. Should the pancake puff up during the first 10- 15 minutes of baking, pierce it with a fork or knife.
Prepare the filling while the pancake is baking. Peel and thinly slice the apples. Sauté lightly in 1⁄4 cup of butter and 1⁄4 cup of sugar. Season with cinnamon and nutmeg and cook until apples are just tender (about 8-10 minutes).
When pancake is ready, place on serving dish, pour apple mixture on one side of pancake and fold the other side over. Cut and serve. Makes 2 generous servings.
