Apple Puff Pancake
This was a delicious way to start the day with my hubby, though I really ate most of it. I was never a big fan of puffed pancakes until now. One time I made a large dutch baby for my sister and hubby. Lets just say it put a damper on our weekend home cookin :( The sliced apples added nice texture to balance out this very soft pancake, and perhaps it was more successful simply because of the size. Great use for the apple.
3/4 c heavy cream
1 vanilla bean
1/2 c white flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c butter
2 tbs light brown sugar
2 Gala apples
confectioner's sugar (for garnish)
