German Apple Pancakes

What You Need

1/4 cup butter
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
Powdered sugar

Here's How

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place the butter in a 9x13 inch-baking dish and place in oven to melt the butter. (You can use two 9 or 10 inch pie plates.) Beat together eggs, salt, milk, and flour until slightly lumpy. Reduce heat to 400 degrees. Place apple slices in single layer in baking dish or pie plates and pour batter over them. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, until brown, crisp, and puffy. Serve with honey and powdered sugar. (You may also serve with yogurt, syrup, jelly, or your topping of choice.) Makes 4 servings.

Notes: For two servings, cut the ingredients in half and use 1 pie plate or an 8x8 inch baking dish.

This recipe is elegant when baked and served in individual au gratin dishes. Divide the batter among the dishes and bake. Make sure the butter is really hot in each dish before adding the batter.
