Baked Apple Pancake

3 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
½ tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp powdered sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted and cooled, divided
3 eggs
¼ tsp salt
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup milk
½ tsp vanilla
2 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 425°. Place apple slices in a bowl (with 2 tbsp lemon juice if no browning is desired - I skip this). Toss with cinnamon and powdered sugar.

Heat a 10" ovenproof skillet (the only ovenproof one I have is a 15 incher, so we double this recipe) over medium heat. Add apples and 4 tbsp butter. Cook on low-medium heat, stirring, for 4 mins or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.

Beat eggs, salt, flour, milk and vanilla until smooth. Beat in the remaining 2 tbsp of butter.

Spread apples evenly in skillet. Pour batter over the top. Bake about 20 mins, until no moist spots are left in batter.

Remove from oven and immediately flip over onto a large plate. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and serve warm.
