Preheating the baking dish before adding the fruit and batter gives the pancake a head start, so that once it is in the oven it billows like a popover. Anjou or Red Bartlett pears can be substituted for the apples. 

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 
  • 4 cups diced peeled tart apples, such as Granny Smith 
  • 2 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar 
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon 
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt 
  •  Confectioners’ sugar for dusting 

Directions:

Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 425°F.

In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, melt 2 Tbs. of the butter. Add the apples and cook, turning as needed, just until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.

Place a large baking dish 12 inches in diameter or 9 by 13 inches in the oven to heat for 5 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven, add the remaining 2 Tbs. butter, and tilt the dish to coat the bottom and sides with the butter. Spoon the apples over the bottom of the dish in an even layer.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and salt until blended. Carefully pour the batter over the hot fruit.

Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven. Using a fine-mesh sieve, dust the top with confectioners’ sugar. Serve immediately. Serves 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breakfast! I made this delicious pancake in my All Clad 10" french pan. The recipe is easy, and comes out perfect each time. I placed the pan in the cold oven and let it heat up so that it was nice and hot. I did not make any changes to the recipe and have passed it along to friends. It's great for a weekday, and company will love it.
