What's for breakfast?

We eat a lot of eggs in our house. Anytime we need a quick meal, regardless of time of day, eggs are usually the answer.

At times though, even egg lovers like us, enjoy a meal that utilizes our plentiful source of hen fruit without tasting like it. The following is one such recipe and one of our weekend favorites.

Apple Oven Pancake

3 large fresh eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Dash salt
Pinch baking powder

1-2 granny smith apples
Cinnamon and honey to taste

2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 375.
Melt butter in a cast iron skillet placed in a hot oven. While the butter is melting whisk eggs and salt in a medium bowl, add flour to make a thick smooth batter before gradually mixing in milk and baking powder. Pour batter in the hot skillet with melted butter and bake for about ten minutes.

While the pancake is baking, peel and thinly slice apples and cook with cinnamon and honey until tender. This can be done either in a skillet on the stove or in the microwave.
Evenly distribute the cooked apples over the pancake and return to oven for an additional five minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
