  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 6 Tbsp. butter divided
  • 3-4 medium apples granny smith work great, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place 3 Tbsp. butter into 10” oven-safe pan and place in oven for 5 minutes.
  • In blender, mix 3 eggs, flour and milk. Blend for 25-30 seconds. Pour into prepared pan. Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes.

While pancake is baking:

  • Melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter in another frying pan over medium heat. Peel and slice apples in ½ inch slices and add to pan with sugar and cinnamon. Cook apples until soft; about 10 minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven; crust will be puffed with big bubbles- don’t pop them- they will relax when fruit is added.
  • Pour warm fruit into center of pancake. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar and serve!
