Yield: 6 servings


  • 5 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • extra melted butter, to brush pan and top of cooked pancakes
  • 4 apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • cinnamon and sugar
  • extra unmelted butter, to dot pancakes while cooking


In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk. Add the melted butter, flour, sugar, and salt, and blend until smooth. Heat a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, and brush with butter. Pour 3/4 cup of batter evenly into pan. When pancake is set, cover with a layer of apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and dot with butter. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 3 minutes. Fold pancake so apples are inside. Remove to a plate. Brush top with butter, and sprinkle with additional cinnamon and sugar. After all six pancakes are done, arrange on an ovenproof platter, and brown under the broiler. Serve at once.

    Would add a couple of notes to the cook: 1) If you have multiple ovenproof skillets, they will significantly speed the process. 2)Use a very low flame on the stovetop to ensure setting without burning.
