Bake With Bizzy - I love apples

I will be pinning featured recipes.  I am finally getting into Pinterest and I am having fun.

I have always wanted to make a puffed apple pancake and I did just that.  I have fallen in love with apples and  missed all the signs.  Usually, we know when we are in love.  Maybe, we are a little silly or a little moody or maybe it is a dreamy quality.  We can't stop talking about "him" and go on and on with ridiculous details.  "He drove a car.   He played cards with Mom.  He picked up the baby.  What an amazing man!"

You continue to bore your friends and soon, you see them slithering away, bored as can be.  It gets lonely but you have your love always there, ready to make you happy.  Who needs friend.  You have the very best friend.  

I fell in love too and my love comes in the form of apples.  A crisp new apple or a baked apple pie or an apple mousse or apples in your meat dishes ------ anything with apple in it.  BUT - did I get moody or silly?  NO.  Did I walk around with my head in the clouds?  NO.  Did I even talk about those apples?  NO.  I hurt my love and didn't realize it.  I am sorry, Apples.

What I did do, was cook a number of dishes with apples, including this puffed pancake.  I ope, I have made it up to my dear friends, the apples.

Puffed Apple Pancake
Puffed Apple Pancake Adapted from Epicurious

1 cup Rice milk
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup brown rice flour
2 tablespoons Canola oil
12 ounces Golden Delicious apples (about 2), peeled, cored, thinly sliced (small chunks)
3 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
Powdered sugar (optional)


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in large bowl until well blended.

Add flour and whisk until batter is smooth. Place oil in baking dish and place dish in oven with oil until it heats. Remove dish from oven.

Place apple chunks in overlapping rows on top of oil in baking dish. Return to oven and bake until apples begin to soften slightly and butter is bubbling and beginning to brown around edges of dish, about 10 minutes.

Pour batter over apples in dish. Bake pancake until puffed and brown, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm. I used some maple syrup on top. So good.
