Big Apple Pancake
- 3 Tb. unsalted butter
- 2 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
- 1/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 lemon wedges
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large ovenproof skillet, (preferably with curved sides, melt 2 Tb. butter over medium heat. Add the apple slices and cook, stirring until tender, about 10 minutes. Add 2 Tb. 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. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and remaining 2 Tb. 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.
Return to the oven to bake until browned, about 8-10 minutes more. As the pancake comes out of the oven, squeeze lemon wedges over the top. Serve in wedges out of the pan.
