I found this recipe on relishmag.com. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds really good. I'll be making it with skim milk. Substituting peaches or pears for the apple would be good too. Time is estimate.
- 1 large granny smith apple
- 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- lemon juice
- confectioners' sugar
- Preheat oven to 450F and place rack in center of oven.
- Peel, core and slice apple.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour and vanilla until smooth.
- Melt butter in a 10-inch cast iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Spread apples in pan and cook for 4 minutes. Turn apples and continue cooking 3 minutes.
- Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over apples and cook another minute or until sugar begins to melt.
- Remove pan from heat, stir apples lightly to coat with sugar, and then top with batter.
- Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees or until mixture puffs up and turns golden brown around edges.
- Remove from oven and cut into four wedges.
- Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve with a sprinkling of confectioners’ sugar.
I found this recipe in 'The Best of Relish Cookbook', made it this morning and came in here to add it to the website so as not to lose it. I was delighted to find it already here! I made this exactly as written, though I sliced the apples into bite-sized pieces so they spread out more evenly in the pan. I used fat-free, lactose-free milk. It puffed up and browned beautifully in exactly 15 minutes and I served it immediately so the brown sugar wouldn't cool and harden in the pan. It was absolutely delicious! Serves 4? Um...my husband and I ate the whole thing. I plan on keeping Granny Smith apples on hand always so I can whip this up again....it's very quick and easy. Thanks for adding this Riverlivin!
