This puffed pancake works nicely as either an elegant breakfast dish or a rustic dessert.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Melt butter in a 12-in. ovenproof frying pan over high heat. Add brown sugar and cinnamon, swirling to combine. Add apple and cook until just starting to soften, about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a blender, whirl together eggs, salt, flour, and milk. Pour egg mixture into pan and bake until puffed and brown, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar.

This recipe was good, flavor was good. The texture wasn't the best, it was kind of a flan egg type texture.

This was so easy to make. And it was tasty. I made it for a brunch and everyone liked it. I will try it for a dessert next time with vanilla ice cream as suggested by afoxcaintx.

A favorite in our house for brunch with 4 eggs and more cinnamon & cloves to spice up the apples (unpeeled). Also good with 2 nectarines. Easily increased with 6 eggs, 3/4 cups each milk & flour.

I loved this one. I used to go to a resteraunt that served this as "apple pancake" but never knew how to make it. Yum!

I was so excited to bake this dish for breakfast, but it did not turn out what I expected. I just saw a review about high elevation and I complete agree. I am so disappointed!!!

Just made this at 9000 ft. and it came out perfectly! So nice and light and not too sweet.

Our family loves this dish for breakfast. We have changed it up from time to time by using pears instead of apples, adding sliced almonds or chopped walnuts. My husband has also had his served with a little peanut butter every once in a while. We have also doubled the recipe and used a larger pan. Love it!

For those of us living at higher elevations, (Santa Fe, Denver, Tahoe, etc.), this recipe will not work. I tried it and it came out flat and dried out. A coating of caramel sauce and ice cream helped but they'd be great on their own! Next time PLEASE include high altitude alterations!!!
