    • Pinch of coarse salt
    • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, melt butter and 3 tablespoons sugar. Add apple slices, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
          2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, milk, cinnamon, salt, and remaining tablespoon sugar. Pour batter slowly over cooked apple mixture. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until dark golden brown, set in the center, and puffed around the edges, about 15 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar; serve immediately.

    These are some apples from our apple tree.  I picked two for the recipe.  I'm not sure exactly what kind they are but I think they are Granny Smith apples.
     Here are the ingredients. 
    The apples,butter and cinnamon were smelling really good!
    After pouring the batter into the pan and baking for 15 minutes it was ready to eat.
    I sliced it and sprinkled some sugar on top.  The apples and cinnamon carmelized on the bottom of the pancake-yum! I also set out some other toppings for the pancakes such as syrup,bananas and some blueberries.

    Ben was happy.  
    Sarah had two pieces-very unusual for her.  
    Smiles from both of the kiddies! Breakfast for dinner is fun for little ones (and mom too). 
    All done!
