  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 c. butter

  • 3/4 c. all-purpose flour (GF use Domata)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. milk

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In a small bowl, toss apple slices, 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice together; set aside.
  3. Cut the butter into four pieces, and place them in a deep cast iron skillet (I used a 10-inch) or 8x8-inch baking dish.
  4. Put the skillet or baking dish in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the butter has melted.
  5. Take the pan out of the oven; sprinkle brown sugar over the melted butter.
  6. Add apple slice mixture evenly over brown sugar.
  7. Put the pan back in the oven while you make the remaining batter.
  8. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt.
  9. Whisk in milk, and continue whisking until no flour lumps remain.
  10. Add eggs, one at a time, and whisk until incorporated.
  11. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  12. Take the pan out of the oven, and pour the batter over the apples.
  13. Bake for 18-25 minutes, or until the center is set and sides are lightly browned.
  14. The pancake will start to deflate once it is removed from the oven.
  15. Serve warm.
