It felt like a fall Saturday, the winds and heat have gone. Here in Southern California we have to take the hints of fall that we can!
I decided to make an Apple Oven Pancake. With apples of all types available it is the perfect time. The pancake has a popover like texture, crisp on the outside and soft dough on the inside. The almond extract adds a bit of a nutty taste.
2 tablespoons butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 granny smith apple peeled and sliced
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Melt butter in cast iron skillet in oven
Arrange apple over sugar in counterclockwise direction. Sprinkle 2 tbsp brown sugar and cinnamon over butter.
Beat eggs slightly in med bowl with whisk or beater. Add in remaining ingredients just until mixed.
Pour into skillet and put in oven.
Bake 25-30 minutes until puffy and deep golden brown.
