Puffed Apple Pancake
First the name of this recipe caught our attention, then the fact that it was submitted by someone from her home town. We didn't like the ratio of batter to apples so listed below is our version of the recipe listed on epicurious.
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup flour
2 Tbs butter
2 apples (peeled, cored, and thinly sliced)
1 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
Powdered sugar (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 F (220 C).
Whisk the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the flour and continue to whisk until smooth.
Place the butter in a baking dish (we used a 13 x 9 inch one) and place it in the oven. Let bake until the butter melts. Remove from the oven, lay the apples out in the dish and return to the oven. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the apples begin to soften and the butter begins to brown along the edges.
Once again remove the dish from the oven. Pour the batter over the apples and sprinkle the brown sugar on top. Place back in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Serve warm with powdered sugar over the top. We ate this for a breakfast/brunch but it would also work as a snack or dessert.
