“This is a great treat for breakfast, and it's so good for something so easy. Use a non-stick pan for the best results. I found it in a magazine I had picked up at a dollar stores years ago. It's a pancake. No, it's apple bread pudding. No, it's Apple Schmarren! A Note: Bev, who made and reviewed this recipe, gave her technique for turning the Schmarren in one piece. It tastes great either way, but if you have the time and patience, I would suggest Bev's technique. It's a much nicer presentation!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the cinnamon sugar by mixing 1 tbs. of confectioner's sugar with 1 teaspoons of cinnamon.
  2. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.
  4. Add the milk and eggs and whisk until smooth.
  5. Add the apple slices and raisins, and stir to mix well.
  6. In a 10-inch non stick skillet, heat the butter or margarine until it just begins to sizzle and spread it around the bottom of the pan.
  7. Pour in the batter all at once and fry.
  8. Don't stir and turn too often, as you want it to brown nicely on both sides, and break up just a little, so you have large pieces.
  9. When done, remove to plates and sprinkle each serving with cinnamon sugar.
  10. Depending on your taste, you may not use all the cinnamon sugar, so just save it for another time.
  11. This makes 2 small servings, or one large.
