Apple Cinnamon Hootenany

Hootenany is such a funny word to say, but it's an even more delicious and easy breakfast to make. I can almost guarantee you have the supplies on hand right now to make one. This super easy and delicious baked pancake (also known as a German pancake) puffs up incredibly in the oven, so make sure you put it on a rack that's not too close to the top of the oven. I like the addition of apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon for extra flavor. You can make this plain or with any combination of flavor add-ins. Experiment and tell me what you liked!

1/2cu (1 stick) butter
6 eggs
1cu milk
1/2tsp vanilla
1cu flour
1/2cu light brown sugar, divided
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, divided
1 thinly sliced apple

1. Place butter, 1/2tsp cinnamon and 1/4cu brown sugar into 9x13 baking dish. Place into oven and preheat to 425*. Remove the pan once the butter has melted.

2. Whisk together eggs, milk, 1/2tsp cinnamon and vanilla until frothy then add in flour. Pour on top of butter in baking dish. Toss apples with the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top of the batter.

3. Put dish into oven and bake for 25 or until the center is set and the edges are browned. Pour maple syrup over as it comes out of the oven, slice, and enjoy!

Let the butter melt in the oven as it preheats.

Mix the apples with the cinnamon and brown sugar

Pour the batter on top of the butter and top with the apples.

This is how it looks when it comes out of the oven and is done.
