Cinnamon Apple Pancake

Cinnamon Apple Pancake

Another day of Thanksgiving prep, all checked off! Although I have to admit, I really screwed up the mashed potatoes and had to go out and buy some more… oops! I was trying to do too many things at one time and left them in the oven too long. They weren’t burnt or anything but the flesh was so lumpy when I tried to mash them, it was useless! Lesson learned!

Anyways, I found this recipe in an old cookbook and something about it just sounded delicious. However, the instructions left a lot of room for interpretation like: cook until its done. Huh? No estimate whatsoever? Still, I chose to proceed with it for some reason. I didn’t even ruin it! I have since made it a bunch and I just keep thinking of ways to make it that much better! And who doesn’t love a pancake you don’t have stand over a flip? ME!

I made up a new realm of food: breaksert! Combination of breakfast and dessert! Cinnamon Apple Pancake could be either or both!

Cinnamon Apple Pancake

2-3 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
dash of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp + 1 TBL cinnamon
5 TBL butter, divided
2 TBL sugar

*I’ve used brown sugar and white sugar interchangeably in this recipe and I wrote it down the way I think works the best: brown sugar in the batter and white sugar sprinkled on top.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together milk, flour, eggs, brown sugar, salt, vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Mix together 2 TBL sugar and 1 TBL cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. Melt 3 TBL of butter in skillet and saute apple slices for 5-7 minutes with half of sugar mixture.

Return to oven until brown, about 5 minutes. *My oven has a hot spot in the back so next time I will rotate to avoid the “leaning tower” effect!

Cut and serve! The final product tastes like cinnamon toast on top of a pancake!
