Apple-Cinnamon-Raisin Baked Pancake

Baked Pancakes are great for breakfast, but they also make a great snack for starving teen boys who need more protein and less sugar :)
This recipe has very little sugar and can be eaten plain or with syrup, honey, powdered sugar, fruit sauces, jams, or just about anything. 
These puff up similar to popovers, then deflate slightly, as you can see by the bottom picture. This recipe is similar in taste to French Toast.

Apple-Cinnamon-Raisin Baked Pancake

1 large apple, cored and sliced thinly
1/3 cup raisins (can omit)
2 1/2 T brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
4 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup wheat flour (can use spelt or all-purpose or other)
2 T melted butter

Preheat oven to 350. 
Spray a glass pie plate.
Place sliced apples in plate. Sprinkle on the raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Bake 15 minutes until apples are tender.

Increase oven temp to 450.
Whisk eggs, milk, flour, and melted butter together.
Pour batter over apples and bake for 15 minutes.

The sides will puff up and deflate slightly as the pancake cools.

Look at those pretty sides! So cool and rustic looking :)

Notice the sides deflate slightly as it cools.
The children ate this for a snack with just a drizzle of maple syrup.Yum!

This looks great and I'm wandering if it would work with gluten free flours. I think I may try it with brown rice flour as I have some of that. My children would love this, and snacks are hard to come by here lately especially ones that keep them full! This sounds great!

I would love to know how it works for you with those flours! You should live with Kemmie! Oh my stars- I told him I was going to BAN him from exercise...he's burning too many calories!;-)
