I’m a fearlessly impulsive kind of person. When I decide to do something I do it right away, like when Ginger and I jumped on a plane last month to go to PFX, and like last night when I decided to buy Caveman Feast then immediately made this recipe. When I say we should do something my husband often jokes, “…Oh— you mean right now!”
In Austin I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked with George, the author of Caveman Feast, but it doesn’t take long to become a fan of his. George will tell you he’s in a constant “state of happiness” and you can feel it when you’re around him or reading his blog. It’s contagious.
I tweeted George last night, as I looked through his book, that I am in awe of his meat recipes—I could really use help in that department. But I couldn’t wait until I bought ingredients to try something, which is why I made his German Apple Pancakes this morning. However, I will be making a grocery list for those mouth-watering meat dishes.
(Click the recipe to see it larger.) This morning for some reason I couldn’t find my ramekins (how cute are they in ramekins?!) so I used my 12 inch cast iron skillet. I put the skillet in the oven then turned on the heat (425 as George says). This way the cast iron got nice and hot while I made the apples and blended the batter.
If you use a cast iron skillet be sure to remember NOT to touch the hot skillet! Add 2 tbsp of coconut oil to the hot pan, pour in the batter, then top with the apples. Mine took about 18 minutes using this technique.
Sometimes it is so nice to just follow someone else’s recipe I really enjoyed this, and I can’t wait to make more! Almond Jalapeno Burgers, Breakfast Burritos, Pumpkin Chicken Chili, and Eggs Benedict Over Savory Waffles are at the top of my must-make list.
