Apple Pancakes

Updated Photo- 1/11/11
It is Alphabet Days at our house (again). So we are eating things that start with A today. I have made these Apple Pancakes a bunch of times and they are delicious. My husband loves them, which means I will make them again and again. We served them with maple syrup, strawberries, powdered sugar, and they are so easy to make. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9*13-inch pan and it served 5 adults (1 teenage boy) and 3 kids.

German Apple Pancakes from Martha Stewart Kids Magazine

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cut into pieces (about 1 pound)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2/3 cup flour
5 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
3 eggs
3/4 cup whole milk

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 8-inch pan with cooking spray or you can use melted butter. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
2. Peel, core,and slice each apple into twelve wedges, then cut each wedge into three pieces. Toss with brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice.
3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and saute, turning occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes, until caramelized. Remove pan from stove; let cool 5 minutes. Spread apples in prepared pan.
4. Place flour, salt, granulated sugar, 2T melted butter, eggs, and milk in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 3 minutes.
5. Pour batter over apples. Place tin in oven and lower heat to 400 degrees. Bake 20-25 minutes. Pancakes will puff up during last 5 minutes of baking.
6.Take pan from oven and turn it over on a flat surface to remove pancakes. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.
