Breakfast for two...
1 red apple, sliced 1/4" thick
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons sugar
3 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1/2 cup milk, plus 2 tablespoons
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons butter
Preheat over 425 degrees. Toss apple slices with lemon juice and sugar. Combine eggs, flour, salt, cinnamon and milk in a mixing bowl. Beat lightly with an eggbeater. The batter should be slightly lumpy. Heat butter in an 11" or 12" skillet (cast iron is best) on burner until hot and foamy. Remove from heat and quickly add the batter. Place in oven. Bake for 25 minutes or until pancake is puffed up and golden brown. The apples (arranged in a pinwheel ) may be added before or during baking, depending on taste. Remove from oven; sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or serve with dollop of homemade jam. Serve oven hot.
Note: I updated this recipe to add a little salt and cinnamon which is optional, but I think it makes it even better. Try maple syrup as another option for the topping.
