I have a weekend breakfast dilemma-one of my children absolutely hates eggs. The rest of us get tired of pancakes, waffles, and biscuits. This weekend we had a surplus of apples…a trip to the nursing home to visit my sister and take her fresh fruit was put off because of what is being called flamingohousebola or the horrid cold all the adults seem to have still, yet, again.
In addition, later this week our college girl will be coming home for a few days. She is the originator of Apple Pancakes in our home-from those months when she was in charge of menus, food budget and meal prep in high school. (Homeschooling Home Ec…)
We didn’t quite make it the Michelle way over the weekend, it still is roughly based on her recipe, but it turned out pretty darn good.
Baked Apple Pancake
1 T butter
1/4 c flour
1/2 c. milk
4 apples, cored, cut into bite size chunks
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 450. Spray pie plate with nonstick spray. Place 1 tablespoon butter in pie plate and place in oven until melted. Whisk flour, milk, eggs, and cinnamon together. Pour into pie plate. Bake 8 min at 450, reduce heat to 375-bake 8 more minutes. Meanwhile, saute apples in remaining butter, add brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook until softened. Remove pancake from oven…cut into 6 pieces, serve with apples on top. Serves 6.
