Oven Baked Apple Puffed Pancake Recipe and a Review for My Tiny Alaskan Oven Cookbook

Apple season is upon us! My Dad's apple tree is full of apples, and he gave me a huge grocery bag full yesterday! Score! I recently received My Tiny Alaskan Oven by LaDonna Gundersen and while paging through, I stumbled upon her recipe for an Apple Puffed Pancake! I absolutely love oven pancakes, so I knew I'd have to give it a try!

This wonderful cookbook is full of rustic and unique recipes. It's LaDonna's 3rd cookbook and all of the recipes were made in a diesel oil stove on their commercial salmon fishing boat! Talk about interesting! There are so many recipes I can't wait to try! 

The Apple Puffed Pancake turned out so delicious! It's a great breakfast or dinner, like we had, especially with some sausage or bacon! We drizzled maple syrup over ours, but you can also sprinkle it with some powdered sugar. It's also super quick to make. So great when there isn't alot of time for a meal. Enjoy!

4 servings

What you need:
1/2 stick butter
8 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
maple syrup or powdered sugar, for topping

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Add the butter to a 9x13 glass baking dish and melt in the oven for 5 minutes. Add the apple slices to the baking dish and return to the oven for another 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon until combined. Batter will be slightly lumpy.

Pour the batter over the apples and butter and sprinkle brown sugar over the top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until puffed and browned. Serve immediately topped with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
