This light baked apple pancake is baked in a cast iron skillet and topped with a homemade apple cider syrup.



  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • cinnamon sticks
  • 1 large unpeeled apple, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 eggs (can sub egg whites for some of the eggs)
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 2/3 cup bread flour (can sub all-purpose or whole wheat)
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Bring the apple cider, 1 cup brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes, until reduced by about 1/3. Set aside and let cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350. Combine the apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Arrange in the bottom of a buttered 9-inch pie plate.
  3. Whisk the rest of the ingredients until just combined and pour the mixture over the apples. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until top is browned and set. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Using a knife, loosen the edges of the pancake from the pie plate. When loose, invert onto a serving platter and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Top with syrup!


-For super thin apples, use a mandoline slicer. It makes for awesome layers.
-I had best results using a pie plate instead of a cast-iron skillet.
-Do not try to add melted butter to the batter. It falls apart. But DO add butter after it’s baked! Yum!
