Apple Pancake Pie
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and set out a deep 10-inch ovenproof skillet.
- 2 Granny Smith Apples - peeled / cored / sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
3 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter - cut into 2 1/4-cup pieces
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar with the cinnamon and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, milk and lemon zest. Blend in the flour just until mixed.
In the skillet - on stove top, melt 1/4 cup of the butter over medium heat. Add the apples and saute for 5 minutes or until tender. Pour the egg batter over the apples and transfer the skillet to the oven.
Bake for 20 minutes -- until the apples are tender and the pie rises.
Meanwhile, melt the remaining 1/4 cup butter. Remove the skillet from the oven, drizzle the pie with the butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Return the pie to the oven for 5 minutes or until the sugar mixture is bubbly. Sprinkle with a little confectioners' sugar and serve immediately, right from the skillet.
As beautiful to look at as to eat. A family favorite. Requires an oven-proof skillet.
