Apple Puff Pancakes

 Apple Puff Pancakes are easily my family's favorite thing to eat. For fun individual sized pancakes (like the one pictured) just follow the same directions, dividing ingredients into 5 or 6 ramekins.  You just may want to double it...we always do :)
You will need:

3 eggs
1/2 cup flour
2 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs butter
2 Tbs sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 large granny smith apple, cored, 
  peeled and thinly sliced or diced
Powdered sugar (opt)
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. In an 8 x 8 inch baking dish melt butter in the oven while it is preheating.  When butter is melted, remove from oven and stir in 2 Tbs sugar, cinnamon and apples.  Return to oven and cook until apples are tender, about 4 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine eggs, flour, salt, and remaining sugar then add milk. (Mix the flour and eggs together first to avoid floaty flour bits).
4. Pour batter over cooked apples.  Return to oven and cook at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and cook until tested done (about 15 minutes or so).  Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
