Pancakes for dinner is one of our favorite meals, and so easy. It is normally our Sunday evening after church meal, though yesterday my husband made a fabulous crock pot roast, so we decided that since we have been cooking a few heavier meals lately we would go light tonight. I pulled this apple topping idea from a Tyler Florence recipe on foodnetwork.com, and it was amazing on top of our blueberry pancakes. I was just lucky enough to have freshly picked apples from a nearby farm to use.
Easy Skillet Baked Apples
4 Golden Delicious Apples
1/3 C. maple syrup (the real stuff!)
1/4 C. butter
- Preheat the oven to 400°.
- Peel the apples, cut them into thirds or fourths, take out the core and seeds, and slice. With the apple cut in thirds I was able to get 4-5 slices per piece.
- Melt the butter and mix in the maple syrup. Add the apples and combine.
- Bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are super soft and starting to caramelize.
