Baked Apple Pancake

by Breads & Grains, Dessert


2 tablespoons butter
1 cup peeled, sliced tart apples
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in heavy cast-iron skillet.

Add apples, pecans, sugar and cinnamon, and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until the apples begin to get tender.

While apples are cooking, place the eggs, flour, milk, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a blender or mixer. Blend for 1-2 minutes on high.

Pour the batter over the cooked apples in the skillet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes; then invert onto a plate.

Slice into 6-8 pie pieces and dust with powdered sugar.

Note: We did this one today (February 14 – for My Valentine), and it is superb
