Baked Apple Pancake

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 medium apples (I like Honeycrisp or Granny Smith), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Add eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and cinnamon to a blender or food processor bowl. Set aside and do not combine yet.
  • Place butter or margarine in a pie plate. Put in the preheated oven until melted (about 5 minutes). Watch this step carefully so that the butter or margarine does not burn. Remove pie plate from the oven when the butter or margarine is completely melted.
  • Arrange the apple slices over the melted butter or margarine and return the pie plate to the oven until it begins to sizzle (about 10 minutes). Remove pie plate from the oven.
  • Now blend the ingredients in the blender or food processor until smooth. Slowly pour this mixture over the apple slices. Sprinkle with brown sugar and additional cinnamon if desired.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a knife comes out of the center clean.
  • Serve with syrup (optional).

    My kids and I adore Honeycrisp apples so that is often what I have on hand.  They are the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy for eating raw. Honeycrisp apples are more of an eating apple than a baking apple but they work just fine in this recipe. Granny Smith apples are also a nice alternative to use in this recipe as the tartness of the apple offsets the sweetness of the sugar and the syrup.

    The delicious aroma of baking apples fill the kitchen as the butter begins to sizzle. Yum!

    This is what the raw pancake looks like before baking. I really love cinnamon so I often sprinkle a little more over the top of the pancake before popping it into the oven.

    Ans here is what the pancake looks like just out of the oven. Can’t you just smell the apples and cinnamon? Let the pancake cool slightly before cutting it into wedges and drizzling it with a touch of syrup. This dish pairs well with a side of sausage links or crispy bacon.
