  • Use a brush to brush the sides and bottom of the skillets so that it is well oiled.
  • Next, place half of a sliced apple into each skillet.
  • Sprinkle half of the maple sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice over each apple in the skillets.
  • Finally, place the skillets into the oven and bake the apple for 5 - 8 minutes or until you can pierce them easily with a fork.
  • While the apples are baking make the pancake batter in a blender.
  • Place the remaining ingredients into the blender.
  • Place the top on and blend for 1 minute.
  • Next, once apples are cooked carefully remove them from the oven.
  • Lastly, pour half the batter into each skillet.
  • Cook 10 - 12 minutes until lightly browned or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Baker's Note:

  • For more aesthetically pleasing pancakes allow some of the apples to poke out.
