It’s Pancake Day!!
Or Shrove Tuesday, the day that precedes Lent.
Many Christian denominations celebrate Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day as a way to use up the rich or fatty foods they don't eat over Lent.
I don’t need an excuse to make pancakes.
Nor do I need an excuse to eat them.
However I will use any excuse to do both!
Plus it’s just silly not to eat pancakes on a day dedicated to pancakes.
I mean you’ll hurt their feelings.
No one wants that on his or her conscience.
Apple Cinnamon Puffy Oven Pancakes take a little more time to cook, but no more effort then normal pancakes.
They are good, definitely worth the extra time.
I say that about anything apple and cinnamon though so I’m a bit biased. I cut them up like a pizza, that way I could pick it up with my hands, way easier to eat that way!
Apple Cinnamon Puffy Oven Pancakes:
2 tbsp of butter
2 large eggs
½ cup plain flour
½ cup milk
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 apple, peeled and sliced
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Place the butter in a 9 inch pie plate and place in the oven.
While you wait for it to melt, lightly beat the eggs before adding the flour, milk, and salt until just combined. Do not over mix.
Using oven mitts remove the pie plate tilt the pie plate until the bottom is covered with the butter, sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the melted butter.
Then arrange the sliced apple over the top before pouring the batter over them.
Bake 25-35 minutes or until puffy and a deep golden brown.
Immediately loosen the edge, I used a butter knife, and turn it upside down onto a plate or cutting board.
Cut up and serve as is or with maple syrup!
I hope you all have a happy Pancake Day!!
