Apple Pancake

My son loves pancakes so i thought i would treat him to an Apple Pancake.

Well needless to say they went down a treat, he loved them, I'd never seen his plate cleared so quickly.....

Unfortunately they had deflated quite a bit by the time i got to take the photos.

They may not be the best looking pancakes, but they tasted fantastic, the apples were soft and caramelised the pancake was light and fluffy.

One was most definitely not enough!!!

Pre heat oven, 200c, 400f, gas mark 6

90g self raising flour
pinch of salt
1 tbsp caster sugar
4 eggs beaten
185ml full fat milk

50g butter
3 tbsp light brown soft sugar
4 apples peeled, cored and sliced
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp lemon juice

You will need a frying pan a cast iron one would be great, if you don't have one, use one with an oven proof handle, if it fits in your oven. Unfortunately mine didn't so i warmed a pie dish in the oven and transfered the prepared apples to that.

Make the batter by putting the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs, milk and vanilla, mix till smooth, leave to rest for at least 20 minutes.

Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the apples and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat.

Add the sugar and lemon juice and cook till the sugar has dissolved.

If your using a frying pan tip the batter over the apples and bake in the oven for 20/25 minutes. Till risen and evenly cooked.

If not pour the apples and caramel sauce into the dish you are using, and pour over the batter and bake in the oven for 20/25 minutes. Till risen and evenly cooked.
