Thanks to a recipe from fellow blogger Morning Ramble, I found this recipe for homemade Amish Baked Apple Pancakes. It was wonderfully fantastic!
Amish Baked Apple PancakesIngredients: 1/4 cup (1/2 stick/2 oz./56g) butter 1 Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into thin slices (I used a Macintosh, and it was good!) 3/4 cup whole milk 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 4 large eggs 3 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt (I added a dash of cinnamon to the batter) Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Instructions: preheat oven to 450 degrees F/230 degrees C. Melt butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over moderate heat, (remove 2 tablespoons of melted butter and place in a mixing bowl.) Add apple slices to skillet and cook, turning over once, until beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. While apple is cooking, add milk, flour, eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt to butter in mixing bowl and blend until smooth. I use a whisk. Pour batter over apple and transfer skillet to oven. Bake in preheated oven until pancake is puffed and golden, about 15 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar or add a bit of maple syrup, then serve immediately. Makes 2-4 servings. Note: in order to get a nice looking pancake that puffs up on the sides, make certain the skillet is hot when you add the batter !
The pancake comes out very large and will serve 4 large portions! We had ours with sausage and a bit of hash browns.
I will be definitely be making this again!
Here is a pic of when it came out of the oven. My electric oven is weird so it did not brown on the top as I would have liked but it was delish!
Here it is all dished up and ready for consumption. YUM!!
After reading Jolly Bee's blog about homemade cranberry sauce, I had to try to make my own. I followed the trail back to the original William Sonoma recipe and it smells wonderful!!
I will NEVER go back to canned cranberry sauce!
Here is a pic of it on the stove and one of the finished product. (I think I need to find a more suitable bowl!)
I cannot wait for a wonderful family meal at my sister's house. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Good food, good company and no other expectations.
I wish all of you a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving holiday. <3
