Apple German Pancake - Gluten Free
Heavenly, Creamy, High Protein, Custardy Breakfast...
2 Non-tart apples
2 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tsp cinnamon
2/3 c. milk
2/3 c. flour mix of your choice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Butter enough to butter your pie dish, 8x8 pan, or heavy oven proof skillet
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
For the Apples: Core and cut the apples into 1/8 inch slices. Put the butter, apples, orange juice, sugar, and cinnamon in a pot or skillet on the stove on medium heat. Stir often for about 10 minutes until the apples soften. Then turn off the heat and prepare your pancake batter.
For the Pancake: Beat the eggs and milk together until smooth. Slowly incorporate the flour. Add the vanilla and mix well. Pour batter into your buttered dish of choice. GENTLY spoon the apple mixture into the pancake batter. Evenly distribute the apples.
Put it all in the oven for 15 minutes. Then, turn the oven down to 350 and set your timer for 10 minutes. Take it out of the oven, let it cool for at least 10 minutes, sprinkle with powdered sugar if you want (I don't think it really needs it) and feel free to thank me later.
Just because it's gluten free, doesn't mean it can't be delicious
