This dessert is excellent when made with fresh apples. But when apples are out of season and more expensive, use 1 cup of dried apple slices. Soak them for 30 minutes in warm apple juice and drain.
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
8 Tbsp butter
2 apples, peeled, thinly, sliced
2 Tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set at medium speed until smooth.
Place butter in a deep pie plate. Heat butter in oven until melted; remove. Layer apples on butter. Return dish to oven. Cook until butter sizzles, about 5 minutes.
Remove dish from oven. Pour batter over apples. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
To keep the cut apples from turning brown, place them in a bowl filled with 1 quart cold water mixed with 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice until ready to use.
