Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • In a medium bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until foamy. Sprinkle in 3 tablespoons of sugar while continuing to whip until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix in the milk, egg yolks, and lemon juice until well blended, then fold in the egg whites using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.

  • Melt the butter in a large cast-iron (or other oven proof) skillet over medium heat. Spread the batter evenly in the pan. Layer the thinly sliced apple over the batter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and remaining sugar.

  • Place the skillet in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes, or until the apples are golden brown and glazed looking. Cut into wedges to serve.

Everyone liked this recipe. However it's better if you double the batter (it makes it thicker ) and if you use grated apple instead of slices. Read More

This recipe definitely needs something... Perhaps if I ever try this again i would double the amount of eggs. I will also give the apple grating a try. Cook time was not 10 mins... i gave it at least 30. Read More

I melted some cheddar cheese on top before sprinkling the cinnamon. It turned out quite delicious. Read More

AH! We loved it! I did have to double the recipe simple because it wasn't going to be enough. Just be sure to slice your apples thinly otherwise they'll take longer to soften/cook. Read More

This is really good. I didn't have any apples so I used sliced strawberries. I didn't double the mixture. I was only serving 2 people. We each had half with an english muffin on the side. I'll definitely make this again. I might play around with it a bit. Read More

Yummy! I made it with granny smith and it was lovely. I didn't double the apples but I also didn't have a mixer on hand so I wasn't able to produce the peaky height of the eggs. I would only do so if the egg could stand up to the weight of the apples. Definitely nice for something different - anyone have suggestions for what to serve it with? Read More

Excellent flavor. Instead of sprinkling white sugar on top try brown sugar. Read More

Submitter's suggestion of doubling apples was a good one. Although I like cinnamon I omitted it in this recipe. Read More
