Beth Thompson for this delicious breakfast recipe! Our pancake took about 40min to cook all the way through. We served it for company and it was demolished by the four of us.
4 large eggs
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
2/3 cup whole milk
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
4 tablespoons packed light brown sugar, divided
3 tablespoons butter, divided
4 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into 3/8-inch slices
Powdered sugar, for dusting
Heat the oven to 425 F. Place a large cast-iron skillet or a 10- or
11-inch round souffle or casserole dish in the oven to heat.
In a blender, combine the eggs, pumpkin, milk, flour, vanilla, salt, 1
teaspoon of the cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar. Blend
for a few seconds to just mix the ingredients. Scrape the sides and
blend again to incorporate. Set aside.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the
butter. Add the apples and saute until just tender, about 5 to 7
minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and
1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Stir to coat the apples, then remove the
skillet from the heat.
Remove the cast-iron skillet from the oven and add the remaining 1
tablespoon of butter, tilting to coat the bottom.
Spoon the sauteed apples over the bottom of the cast-iron skillet.
Pour the batter over the hot apples, then bake until puffed and golden
brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve
