dutch apple pancake

so this doesn't fall in with any of your requests, which i will get to. for sure. but in the meantime, i wanted breakfast for dinner and this is what came out.

4 T. butter
2 medium apples, cored and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 T. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
powdered sugar for dusting

preheat oven to 400° and butter a deep pie dish. in a frypan over medium heat, melt 2 T. butter. Add apple slices, cinnamon and sugar and sauté, stirring occasionally, until apples begin to soften and brown, 5-6 minutes; set aside. in a bowl, beat eggs with a whisk, add milk and beat mixture until blended. sift flour and salt into egg mixture and beat just until blended. melt remaining 2 T. butter, add to flour-egg mixture, adn beat until smooth. pour batter into prepared pan and arrange apples evenly over batter. bake until pancake is browned adn puffed up, 25-30 minutes. dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately. serves 4.

I'm a new visitor to your blog, and just had to comment that this looks so, so, so delicious! I've lost my ability to taste sweet (temporarilly, I hope!), and so my only sweet-tooth satisfaction comes in longing over beautiful pictures like the one on your blog. Yum!

Mother C!
Who knew about your love for things culinary and confectionery! We could have joined forces as Vikings and made some delicious things.
I'm now adding you on to my list of things to look at while working.
And I might have a recipe for chocolate lava thingers. Let me check.
