Apple Puff Pancake Recipe
Recipe type: Breakfast

Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil (but I prefer butter)
  • 4 tablespoons sucanat/rapadura, divided ** (Like this)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thinly
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup flour (I use unbleached all-purpose flour. You can use whatever you have)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a 10" cast iron skillet, melt the butter and stir in 1 tablespoon sucanant and the cinnamon.
  2. Cook the apples in the butter/sugar/cinnamon until they are soft and you have a lovely light brown syrup developing in the bottom of the pan from the delectable combination of the butter and sweetener.
  3. Spread the apples out evenly over the pan, and remove from the heat.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. You can do this with a whisk, stand mixer, hand mixer, or blender. If you use anything other than a blender, you might have a slightly lumpy batter, but I've never had the lumps cause problems.
  5. Pour the batter over the apples, and place the cast iron skillet in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until puffed and brown.
  6. Serve with fresh fruit and/or maple syrup, if you wish.
