I wanted to bake something over the weekend but I was way too lazy to go to the store. Once I decided to use the apples I had, I found this recipe and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was!
- 5 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 small crisp apples (I actually used about 5 because the apples I had were teeny tiny)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl. Beat the eggs lightly and then add the melted butter.
Now combine this mixture with the egg and butter mixture. Mix well.
Peel and thinly slice your apples.
Take the skillet off of the heat and pour the batter over the apples. Measure 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and stir them together in a small bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the batter. This might seem like a lot of sugar, but it definitely needs the sweetness.
Place the skillet in the oven and cook for 15-25 minutes until brown and puffed. Do not open the oven during the first 15 minutes of the cooking process, or the puff will deflate. Serve immediately.
There's still a chance that the puff will deflate once it's done cooking and you take it out of the oven (mine did). Regardless, it's delicious!
