Baked Apple Pancake

Filed under: Breakfast, Breakfast - Pancakes, Brunch, Fruits - Apples.

Puffy, golden, baked, one pan apple pancake.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 cup whole, 2 percent fat, or 1 percent fat milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a large ovenproof skillet (preferably with curved sides) with non-stick cooking spray, then melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the apple slices and cook, stirring, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar and stir to combine.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, salt, milk, and flour. Pour this batter over the apples in the skillet, transfer to the oven, and bake until puffy, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Cut the remaining tablespoon of butter into pieces. When the pancake puffs, remove from the oven, dot with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and return to the oven to bake until browned, about 10 minutes more. Remove from oven.
Cut into wedges to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Servings depend on the size of the pan used. Recipe as stated serves 2, using a 10 inch pan.
