2 tbsp. butter (divided)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
cinnamon, for sprinkling
How To Make The Skillet Apple Pancake
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
On your stovetop at medium heat, melt one tbsp. butter in a 12" black skillet, then scatter in the apple pieces. Cook on medium heat until the apples have softened, and some are browned. This usually takes about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk (or use a hand-mixer) the three eggs with the one teaspoon salt. Whip them until they (approximately) double. This will only take about 2 - 3 minutes of whipping with a whisk, and about 1 1/2 minutes with a hand-mixer.
Pour in the half cup flour and the half cup milk, and beat until incorporated. Set aside.
Add the one tbsp. of butter to the cooked apples, and tilt the pan until the butter has melted and coated the bottom (there will already be some liquid from the cooked apples.)
Pour the egg mixture onto the cooked apples. Lightly sprinkle the top with cinnamon then put the skillet into the (preheated!) oven to bake for about 15 minutes. If your oven runs "cool" they make take upwards of 20 minutes. Mine are always ready in about 15 - 16 minutes.
Once baked, remove from the oven, and let sit for about 3 minutes. Slice into pie-shaped wedges and serve with genuine maple syrup.
This recipe serves 2 people with big appetites, or four with small appetites (or with goodies on the side like sausage or bacon, etc.)
YES, this recipe can be doubled! Make sure you use a larger black skillet.
