Both the name and flavor of this dish are a mouthful. But once you get past the pronunciation, you’ll adore the ‘wunderbar’ taste of these Apfelpfannkuchen or Apple Pancakes. Try “app-fell-fan-kooch-en”.  And now you know why Germans don’t play Scrabble!
Although Apfelpfannkuchen is technically a dessert, it makes a superb accompaniment to pork chops or pork roast and goes very well with a ham steak.
