I’ve liked this puffy pancake since my grandmother made one pretty similar to mine,. satisfying my appreciation for eggs and fruit together.And because I usually always have eggs and apples around, this easy-to-make dish is a familiar one at our dinner table—and shows up for other meals, as well.
3 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced, such as Gala, Rome or Honey Crisp
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
Maple syrup, for serving
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Whisk the eggs with the milk and 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Whisk in the flour and salt until smooth.
Melt the butter in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat and when it begins to bubble, add the apples and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, tossing very gently. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of sugar and the cinnamon, if using, over the apples and cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer or until tender.
Pour the batter into the skillet and transfer it to the oven. Bake for 10 to12 minutes or until the mixture sets and puffs slightly. Serve hot from the oven, sprinkled with more cinnamon, if desired, and with maple syrup.
