Apples

Will our picking adventures ever end? 
Hey, we still have a month or so of summer and you know what Proverbs says about storing up for winter!:)
The kids were in charge of picking up the windfall apples. 
Oh, and tasting them!
Good thing these were the sort outs!:)
Here is an apple recipe we made this week.  One of our favorites!

Apple Pancake
from What's Cooking America (my favorite cookbook that I bought as a teenager while delivering berries)

1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten and room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk, room temperature
7 tablespoons butter
1-2 green tart cooking apples, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside.  In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt, flour, and milk; Beat until batter is smooth.
In a large, heavy ovenproof frying pan or a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt butter, turning pan to cover sides.  Add apples and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Stir and let cook for 5 minutes.
Pour batter over apples into pan and bake 25 minutes or until puffed above sides of the pan and lightly browned.  Remove by flipping upside down onto a serving platter (apples and cinnamon will be on top).  Serve immediately. 
We like to have this recipe with a side of breakfast sausage as the apple pancake is fairly sweet! 

YUM!

  1. What a flash back! I remember (what seemed like) countless hours spent picking up windfalls with David over the years.
