Baked Pancakes with Apple Topping
Makes 6 Servings
1½ chopped cooking apples
Preheat oven to 400°F. While oven is heating, whisk eggs, vanilla extract and milk together in a medium bowl. Add flour and whisk for 30 seconds. Mixture will be lumpy. Spray 6 individual oval ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. Divide mixture evenly among the ramekins. Bake 20 minutes. While pancakes are baking, melt butter in a medium skillet, chop apples (leave skin on) and place them in the melted butter. Add cinnamon/sugar mixture to apples and stir until the apples are the consistency of an apple pie mixture. Heat maple syrup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Place pancakes on individual plates, divide the apple mixture among the pancakes and drizzle with syrup. Garnish with sliced strawberries, whipped cream and a sprinkle of nuts. Serve immediately with sausage or home fries.
“This recipe started out with the apples baked in the pancake but as the years went on, they ended up in the top with a drizzle of maple syrup, whipped cream, and sometimes chopped nuts. It has been a popular dish. In fact, we have a couple who ask for it each time they visit. He says she can’t make it like I do and she agrees!” —Innkeeper, Albert Shafsky House Bed & Breakfast --
