Dave's Birthday Breakfast - Baked Apple Pancakes and Bacon
Now... yesterday was the big 47 for David. He worked at the firehall all day, so we didn't get to celebrate with breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. We are going to Demo's tomorrow for lunch for his and Ali's birthdays, so I get out of a big celebration meal - think I will still make him his favorite pie, though... Coconut Cream. That post will come later. This morning I decided on a baked apple pancake - inspired by the ones from my childhood from Bickford's Pancake House. I looked up their recipe, but it is too small and made in an iron skillet. My skillet won't make enough for 7 hungry "brunchers", so I adjusted the quantity and am trying it in a 9x13 baking dish. Let's see how it comes out! I also cooked some thick-cut bacon to go along with it. It's smelling good, so I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
3 med. apples, peeled and sliced thin
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/3 c. sugar
2 T. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
Preheat oven to 400'. Layer the apples in a well-greased 9x13 baking dish. Mix cinnamon into the sugar and sprinkle over the apples. Drizzle the butter over the seasoned apples. In a bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Whisk in the vanilla and milk. Whisk in the flour and salt until thoroughly combined. Pour over apples and bake for 30 minutes until cooked through. Serve with maple syrup.
That's it. It was yummy and perfect for a cold winter morning!!
Until next time, stay warm and loved, my friends!!
