Baked Apple Pancake

This is a lot like our favorite strawberry pancake. The batter is the same. The addition of the sliced apples, cinnamon and brown sugar make it a favorite for a fall or winter breakfast. It will make your kitchen smell wonderful in the morning.
 It will puff-up slightly.
 You can use a glass or pottery pie dish or a cast iron skillet.
 Melt the margarine in a pie dish in a 425 oven.
 Gather your ingredients: batter, cinnamon and brown sugar mixture, and sliced apples sprinkled with a little lemon juice and tossed in a bowl.
 Add the apples to the bubbly hot melted margarine/butter. Sprinkle half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top of the apples. Return to the oven for 5 minutes.
 Then pour the batter over the apples. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top.
 Return to the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until puffed and golden.
 Sprinkle with a little extra lemon juice and cinnamon sugar.
 The aroma of a baked hot cinnamon apple pancake and coffee brewing will lure you, or anyone out of a bed on a cold morning. 
You could also serve these with warm maple syrup,
though we prefer just a spritz of lemon juice and
a sprinkle of extra cinnamon sugar. 
Cut into wedges to serve.
You can double the recipe and use a 9X13 pan
and bake for 30 minutes..

Baked Apple Pancake
 1 large apple, peeled and sliced
1 t lemon juice
2 T butter
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon

2 eggs
1/2 C flour
1/2 C milk
1/4 t vanilla
pinch salt

Toss the apple slices with lemon juice in a bowl,
 set aside while you make the batter.
Put the 2 T butter into the pie dish and put
into the oven and preheat to 425. For the
batter, whisk the eggs, then add the flour
and milk. Whisk until smooth. Whisk in
vanilla, set aside. Combine the brown sugar
and cinnamon. When the butter in the dish
 is bubbly hot, remove from the oven and add
the apples. Sprinkle half the brown
sugar/cinnamon mixture over the apples and
 return the dish to the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven and pour the
batter evenly over the apples. Sprinkle the
 remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture
on top. Return the pan to the oven and bake
another 20-25 minutes until slightly puffed
 and golden brown. Put your plates in the oven
the last minute or two to heat.
Sprinkle with a little additional lemon juice
and cinnamon sugar. Cut into wedges and serve
right away on heated plates.
Pass additional cinnamon sugar.

    This recipe was awesome! I made two this week for my husband and 16 year old son. I "snuck" in about 1/2 cup of oatmeal to the batter. I made a double recipe (9X13) and cut it up into individual servings and then wrapped those in wax paper. My son heats a slice of it up in the microwave every morning for his breakfast - he loves it and its a break from cereal and/or eggs. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
