Oh my goodness!  This is so yummy it deserves two photos!  This is the best thing I've made in ages!  So simple but so special...this is amazing for overnight guests or for Christmas morning...it is a delicious and classic hearty breakfast with lots of options on fruit and toppings!

GERMAN APPLE PANCAKES

6 Apples, peeled and cored - (Patty uses Red Delicious)
 4 Tbl Butter
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 sup white sugar
4 eggs
1/4 cup cinnamon sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
Directions:
Heat a 10 inch cast iron skillet on medium high and melt butter then add apples and cinnamon sugar.
Cook apples on medium high heat until they are al' dente.  You want them cooked but no soft.
Remove skillet of apples from heat and add the mixture of flour, milk, salt, eggs, brown and white sugar (well blended) over the top of the bed of apples.  Make sure your apples form a solid base before adding your batter over the top.
Bake in the oven at 375* for 12 -  15 minutes.  The center should be set and golden brown.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  You can also top this with maple syrup if you're especially sweet!  Serve warm right from the skillet!
I've seen this recipe with just the pancake recipe baked in the oven then add strawberries and blue   berries about 10  minutes before the pancake are done.  I love the baked apples so that's what I chose.  You do what fruits suit you and enjoy!!!
