Apple Skillet Pancake

There are many variations on this type of dish, but I've not made too many. So not sure how this recipe stacks up against others, but it was delicious.

Apple Skillet Pancake
from Sweet Potato Chronicles

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large gala apple, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup spelt flour or all-purpose flour
4 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
confectioner’s sugar or maple syrup (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 and position a rack in the middle of the oven.

Place 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium heat and melt. Add the apple wedges to skillet and cook, flipping once, until they begin to soften, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove apple wedges from skillet and place on a plate.

Meanwhile, melt the other tablespoon of butter. Place butter, milk, flour, eggs sugar, vanilla and salt in blender and mix until you create a smooth batter. Pour the mix into the skillet on the oven. Allow the batter to set for about a minute and then arrange the apple slices in a circular pattern on top of the batter.

Transfer skillet from stove top to the oven and bake for about 15 or until pancake is puffed and golden brown. Remove skillet from oven.

Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve alone or with maple syrup. Be careful of the hot skillet at the table.
