Apple Oven Cake

On weekends, I really enjoy making breakfast. I put on the coffee and start whipping something up. My latest things are muffins (I've begun experimenting with all sorts of versions) and this, an Apple Oven Cake. I made it this morning and thought I'd share it with you. It's really tasty and is especially nice in the fall when apples are "in", but since apples are always "in" around here, you could really make it year-round.

It's super easy and quick, and delicious! I think you'll get hooked on it, too.

Apple Oven Cake

3 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 sweet apple, such as Fuji, peeled and sliced
3 large eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup each flour and milk
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 425. Melt butter in a 12 inch ovenproof frying pan over high heat (pictured in the recipe was a cast iron skillet, so if you have one of those, you may want to use it). Add brown sugar and cinnamon, swirling to combine. Add apple and cook until just starting to soften, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a blender, whirl together eggs, salt, flour and milk. Pour egg mixture into pan (over the apples and brown sugar) and bake until puffed and brown, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve right from the pan.

  1. I just made this recipe. YUM! It's actually more like an Apple Oven Popover than a cake. Very light and the perfect dessert to eat without feeling sugared out or too stuffy. Thanks so much!

  2. I've never tried it for dessert, but that sounds like a great idea. Glad you liked it.
