This recipe is for a fluffy pancake called a Dutch baby pancake that is baked in the oven. With just a few simple ingredients and a bit of time you'll end up with an amazing looking and delicious pancake.
Melt the butter in a 9" pie plate in the oven. Brush the butter on to the side of the pie plate. Sprinkle the brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon evenly over the melted butter in the plate. Arrange 1 cup of thinly sliced peeled or unpeeled baking apples over the brown sugar.
Now make the pancake batter by beating the eggs slightly in a medium bowl with a wire whisk or hand beater. Beat in the remaining ingredients, just until mixed. Do not over beat the mixture. Pour the batter into the pie plate over top of the apples.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the pancake is puffy and deep golden brown. Invert the pancake on to a large plate so the apples are showing on the top. Serve it immediately, sprinkled with lemon juice and powdered sugar if desired.
