Dad's Delight

Fathers Day..a day to pamper Dad with gifts, some quiet time and delicious food.
This brunch dish is one of my husbands favorites. He made it for me this past Mother's Day. (Think he had an ulterior motive there? )
As it bakes in the oven it is quite impressive as it puffs up.

You can substitute just about any fruit such as peaches or strawberries.
We used apples here.
This is so decadent it could also be used a a dessert with a dollop of ice cream on the side.

Deep Dish Apple Oven Pancake.

  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of fruit of your choice mixed with sugar if desired to taste.
  • Icing sugar

Preheat oven to 400 F

Melt the butter in a round deep round pie plate. Brush up and around sides.
Beat eggs in a bowl and then add remaining ingredients except fruit and combine.

Pour into pie plate and top with fruit.
Bake about 30 minutes until puffy and golden brown.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with syrup and whipped cream.

Wine Suggestion: Bellini (Champagne with orange, peach or mango juice)
