Ingredients
  

  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick - softened butter - divided
  • 1/2 cup - brown sugar - packed
  • 1 teaspoon - cinnamon
  • 1 cup - all purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup - milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon - vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon - sugar
  • Powdered Sugar optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Grease/spray a 13x9 baking dish.
  • Core, peel and slice apples.
  • In a medium bowl combine apple slices, 1/4 cup butter (half the stick), brown sugar and cinnamon. In the microwave, heat on high for 3-5 minutes till apples are tender - stirring twice during cook time. Alternately you can do this stovetop in a skillet .
  • Mix apple mixture well and spoon evenly into baking dish.
  • In a medium/large bowl - combine remaining ingredients. Mix until well blended. Pour or spoon evenly over apple mixture.
  • Bake for 25 - 28 minutes. The middle should be set and the pancake should be puffed up and edges nicely browned.
  • Let sit for a few minutes before cutting. I think this pancake is perfect served as is - but you could sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar. Enjoy : )
