Apple Pie Baked Pancake

Yield: 6 – 8 hearty portions

3 apples – peeled, cored and cut into wedges then sliced ½” thick

¼ – cup butter

2/3 cup brown sugar – packed

½ – cup raisins

1-tbsp cinnamon

1-tsp allspice

Pinch cloves

Pinch salt

1-tsp vanilla

Juice of 1 lemon wedge (about 1/8 of a lemon) – seeded

1¼ cup Aunt Jemima Original Pancake and Waffle Mix

1-cup milk

1-egg

Melt butter over medium high heat in a 12” frying pan.  Add in thick sliced apples. Stir occasionally until apples start to turn golden brown on the edges.

Add the brown sugar and raisins.

Lower heat to medium low and stir into the apples.

Keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Once sugar is dissolved add in the spices, salt, vanilla and lemon juice.

Simmer over medium low heat until half of the liquid is gone; this will take approximately 10 minutes. Keep stirring so the sugar does not burn.

Now, here is the part where you can stop and do the rest Christmas morning.

Leave the apple mixture in the pan to cool then put in the refrigerator.

On Christmas morning take the mixture out of the refrigerator and put on the burner on low heat. Stir occasionally as it heats up.

While this is heating, preheat your oven to 375ºF and in a bowl add the pancake mix, egg and milk and stir with a whisk. Let stand 5 minutes.

Pour the batter over the simmering apple mixture and place the pan on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.  Place a plate upside down on top of the frying pan and flip over so the bottom of the pancake is now on top.

Cut in wedges and serve piping hot with whipped cream, cream cheese frosting, whipped goat cheese or for the adults whipped cream with Baileys.

This is sure to become a Christmas morning tradition but remember: this is good enough to eat all year!

This is also an amazing side dish with roasted pork or pork chops.

I know it sounds weird, but it’s like having apple butter and polenta all in one.
