Apple Puff Pancake

Monday, October 7, 2013
                I love Apple Puff Pancake or any Puff Pancakes for that matter!
I could eat one form or another of Puff Pancakes every morning for the rest of my life and feel totally satisfied. I can attest to this only because when I was in 4th or 5th grade Granny made me Puff Pancakes pretty much every morning and never once did I grow tired of there deliciousness.
This time I baked the apple into the Puff Pancakes out of sheer laziness.
The sides of the puff pancake don't rise as much with the apples baked inside as traditional puff pancakes but the taste is still totally amazing and it does rise gorgeously.
I also love to keep dishes to a minimum in the morning time because:
1. Who likes to do dishes? Not me!
2. I think we have a dirty dish ghost in our house, every time the sink is clean and empty he magically appears to refill it.
3. I love to cook but hate dirty dishes.
4. I super de duper hate dirty dishes. Enough said!
Alright I know you get the point, sorry I got a little carried away again.
I can't wait to make these again soon, they're defiantly one of my all time favorites!

Whisk 3 eggs until blended.
Add flour and a pinch of salt. Mix until well blended. Mixture might be slightly lumpy that's ok.

Slowly stir in milk and vanilla. Set mixture aside.
I actually made them this time with coconut milk and they still turned out delicious.
In a 9"-12"cast iron skillet melt butter. Add sliced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook apples over medium-hi heat until lightly caramelized and softened. About 4-5 minutes.
If your don't have a cast iron skillet feel free to use a 9"-10" pie pan. If using a pie pan saute apples in a frying pan before adding. Add 2 tablespoons butter to pie pan and melt in oven. Add apples to pan. 
Cover apples with puff pancake batter and bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until apple puff pancake is puffed and golden.
Sprinkle generously with sifted powdered sugar.
Add a generous sprinkle of sifted cinnamon and serve.
This makes 2 generous servings or 1 Serena sized serving of Apple Puff Pancake.
Sorry sometimes I don't like to share.
