Simple Saturday - Apple Pancake

Ok, another "In-season" recipe - this Apple "puff" pancake makes for a great special breakfast or fun supper - we had this along with some Sausage for the Chewy Tot's birthday supper last week!

Baked Apple Puff Pancake

2 tablespoons butter
2-3 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/8 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 cup light brown sugar, packed

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the apple slices and cook, stirring, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add 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. Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter. When the pancake puffs, remove from the oven, pour and spread butter over the entire pancake, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and return to the oven to bake until browned, about 10 minutes more. Serve in wedges right out of the pan.


  1. By skillet do you mean a cast iron fry pan? I think this looks tremendously good, and I am thinking I must give it a whirl!! Yummy!!

  2. yep Tina - cast Iron is what I use - then it's even a "one pan" dish!
