This baked apple pancake is a big hit in my house. It looks fancy and makes the house smell heavenly.
My kids love it, and it is easy enough to make on a busy school-day morning. It's a nice change from bagels and cereal, and I am happy that the kids are getting some protein from the eggs.
Here's the recipe:
Big Apple Pancake:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into thin slices
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar (I use about 1 tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Position rack in middle of oven and heat to 450 degrees. Melt butter in an oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add apple slices and cook 3-5 minutes until apples are soft. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl beat 4 eggs. Add the milk, flour, salt, sugar and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Pour mixture over apples in skillet.
Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 15 minutes or until pancake is puffed and golden. Dust with confectioner's sugar and serve immediatley.
