My Girl, Paula: Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake

This week's theme was to make something with Fruit. I decided to make the Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake out of Paula's "The Lady & Sons II" cookbook. I made it for breakfast this morning. My son and his friend who spent the night proclaimed it to be awesome. It was delicious and very easy to make.

2 cans apple pie filling
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, warm the apple pie filling, butter, cinnamon.

In a bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the milk, flour, sour cream, lemon zest, and salt. Beat just until batter is smooth. Pour over the hot apple mixture in the skillet, and immediately put the pan in the oven.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the pancake is puffed up and golden brown. Using a small, fine sieve, lightly dust the top of the pancake with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm.

Serves: 4-6
