This oven pancake has a moist, almost custardy texture. It’s wonderful as is but would also be delicious topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.


Olive oil cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Unsalted butter

2 tbsp(s), divided


2 small, Gala, cored, cut in 1/4-in-thick slices

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp(s)

Fat-free skim milk

1 cup(s)

All-purpose flour

¼ cup(s)

Raw egg

3 large


2 tbsp(s)

Vanilla extract

2 tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

1 tsp(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; add apples and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, tossing occasionally, until golden, 8-10 minutes. Add cinnamon; toss to coat. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  3. Arrange apples in an even layer on bottom of prepared pie plate.
  4. Wipe skillet clean; melt remaining 1 Tbsp butter over medium heat. Pour butter into a blender; add milk, flour, eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth; pour in an even layer over apples.
  5. Bake until puffed and golden, 25-30 minutes. Let cool until warm and then dust with powdered sugar. Slice into 6 pieces; serve warm.
  6. Serving size: 1 piece


This is a great recipe to serve for brunch. To get a head start, you can saute the apples the night before.
