Ingredients

  • 2

    large eggs

  • ¾

    cup half and half

  • 1

    tsp. vanilla extract

  • ½

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    tbsp. granulated sugar

  • ½

    cup unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tbsp. unsalted butter

  • 3

    Granny Smith apples, (about 1-¼ pounds), peeled, cored and cut into ¼-inch slices

  • ¼

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2

    tbsp. powdered sugar

  • Maple syrup, warmed

Directions

Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat oven to 500 degrees. Combine eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor or a blender and process until well combined, about 15 seconds. Add flour and process until thoroughly mixed and free of lumps, about 30 seconds; set batter aside. Add butter to a 10-inch oven proof nonstick skillet and heat over medium-high heat until butter foams. Add apples and sprinle brown sugar evenly over them. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples begin to turn light brown, about 5 minutes. Continue to cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until apples are golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Quickly pour batter around edge of pan over apples; place pan in oven. Reduce heat to 425 degrees and cook until browned and puffed, 16-17 minutes. With a heatproof spatula, loosen edges of pancake. Invert pancake onto a serving platter, dust with powdered sugar, and serve accompanied by warmed maple syrup.
