3 large eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
7 tablespoons melted butter, divided use
1 tart green apple, sliced
powdered sugar for sprinkling
apple or pear sauce for accompaniment (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Make a batter of the eggs, flour, salt, milk and 4 tablespoons melted butter and blend until smooth.

Heat 3 tablespoons of butter in an iron skillet or other oven-proof pan, until bubbly, add apple slices and saute over medium heat until crisp-tender.

Pour batter into hot skillet over the apple slices. Place skillet in oven and bake until edges are browned and crisp and cake is puffed, about 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or serve with apple or pear sauce.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This was a very simple and delicious recipe. I flipped the "cake" over by inverting onto a serving plate, dusted with powdered sugar and then allowed folks to choose from vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce and applesauce as toppings. The whipped cream and caramel sauce were most popular. This served 4.
