Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake
For the Apple Filling:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3-4 large Granny Smith or other firm, tart apples sliced
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)
½ cup English walnuts (optional)
For the Pancake:
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup milk
1 tablespoon sour cream
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar
Preheat an oven to 400
To make the apple filling, in a 10-inch ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the apples, sugar and cinnamon and sauté”, stirring constantly, until the apples begin to soften and brown lightly, 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
To make the pancake, in a bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat the eggs, until lightly frothy. Add the flour, milk, sour cream, salt and lemon zest and beat just until a smooth batter forms.
Immediately pour the batter over the apples in the hot pan and place in the oven. Bake until nicely puffed and golden brown, about 25 minutes.
Cut directly from the pan, cut in half or into wedges. Lightly dust confectioner’s sugar over the top. Serves 4-5.
