I have been a little lax on the blog lately since the weather has been so nice and we have been spending a lot of time outside. So far this spring we have picked lettuce twice. The radishes and kale are also ready to be harvested. We had a bit of rain this morning and our first two zucchini flowers popped out. Everything else is coming along well and it looks like this year will be a great season for produce.
In honour for Father’s Day I decided to make an old favourite for my wonderful hubby that I found in a Christmas cookbook about 15 years ago.
Oven Apple Pancake
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
pinch of cinnamon
1 – 2 apples (I used McIntosh) peeled, cored and sliced
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup flour
Melt butter in a 9 inch pie plate at 425 F
Remove pan from oven, stir brown sugar and cinnamon into melted butter.
Overlap apples in a single layer on top of the brown sugar mixture.
In a small bowl add eggs, milk, salt and flour. Stir to moisten. Don’t try to smooth out the small lumps. Pour over apples.
Return pan to oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until top is golden brown.
Cut into wedges. Serves 4 – 6
