An easy but special Sunday breakfast

Just look at how it puffs!

Regardless of weather or not I've done the week's groceries yet, I always have the necessary ingredients on hand for this weekend favourite.

It's the 20-minute supper club's version of a dutch baby, and it's very good and easy to make. It's also a lot of fun. (As a general rule: If a recipe has "puff" in the name, you're pretty much guananteed a good time.)


2 cups peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith apples
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
6 tbsp granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
Pinch salt
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp unsalted butter
Maple syrup, optional


Preheat oven to 425ยบ. In a bowl, combine apples with lemon and 3 tbsp granulated sugar, set aside.
In another bowl, combine eggs, flour, milk and salt; whisk until smooth.

In a third bowl, combine remaining sugar with cinnamon, set aside.
In an ovenproof dish, add butter, then place into oven until butter begins to sizzle. Remove from oven and pour batter into dish.

Arrange apple slices on top and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until golden and puffed.

Serve with maple syrup.
