Dutch Apple Pancakes :: Cookin' for One

Cooking for one doesn't have to suck. No indeed. I used gala apples for the recipe shown; nicely sweet and soft after baking. The original recipe calls for one to peel the apples. I don't. For the nutrition and color.

This is great for lunch right out of the oven - hot - and served in a bowl with a little milk.

The next day it's great - again warmed - for 10 minutes @ 300° in the toaster oven. Just enough to take the chill off and crisp the sugar-glazed "crust".

Preheat oven to 400°

3 Grannie Smith Apples - cored & sliced thin, are sautéed 5 minutes over medium high heat in ovenproof pan with:

2T butter
1/4 C sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Mix together to create lovely batter consistency:

3 eggs
1/2C milk
1/2C flour
1 T. sour cream
1/4 t. salt
1 t. grated lemon zest

Bake 25 minutes for golden-brown goodness that makes the house smell like home.
