Apple Flognarde
Cuisine: French
Author: Janelle
  • 2 apples (whatever is local and fresh will do!)
  • 1½ cups milk (low-fat is fine)
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sugar + 1 tbsp
  • ½ cup flour + 1 tbsp, sifted
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • zest of a lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and cut the apples in cubes.
  3. Butter a 9″ pie dish and place the apple pieces on the bottom of the dish.
  4. Whisk the flour, milk, eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and lemon zest in a bowl (it will look like crepe batter).
  5. Pour the mixture over the apples in the dish.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the apples are browned on top and the pancake is puffed.
  7. The “pancake” will deflate when left to cool.
  8. Let cool 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
