DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Whisk together the eggs, sugar and salt until smooth.
  • Whisk in the milk, heavy cream and vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat butter in a 9-inch nonstick pan or a cast iron pan, until melted.
  • Stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook until the sugar has completely melted.
  • Add the apples and cook until slightly soft, about 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest.
  • Pour the batter over the apples and place the pan in the oven.
  • Bake until the edges are brown and puffy, about 16-18 minutes.
  • Carefully invert the pancake onto a serving platter.
  • Dust with confectioners' sugar and drizzle with some of the caramel sauce.
  • Caramel Sauce:
  • Place sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat (do not stir), swirling the pot occasionally to even out the color, until amber in color, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • While the caramel is cooking, place the heavy cream and cinnamon stick in a small pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Remove from heat and keep warm.
  • When the caramel has reached the desired color, remove the cinnamon stick from the heavy cream and slowly begin adding the warm cream to the caramel and whisk until smooth.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the brandy.
