Puffy Baked Apple Pancake
Baked apple pancakes are a special treat for a festive brunch. Try these delicate pancakes sprinkled with a little powdered sugar and frosty glasses of orange juice.

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1/3 cup all-purpose baking mix
2 Tbs granulated sugar, divided
3 large eggs, separated
2 Tbs orange juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 medium apple, cored, quartered, and cut into thin slices
1 Tbs cinnamon-sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Spray 10-inch ovenproof skillet lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Place in oven for 10 minutes.

  2. Place evaporated milk, baking mix, 1 tablespoon sugar, egg yolks, orange juice and cinnamon in blender; blend until smooth. Beat egg whites in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Fold milk mixture into egg whites.

  3. Pour batter into hot skillet. Gently push each apple slice about 1/2 inch into batter, peel side up, to form a spoke-like pattern around batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until set. Serve immediately.
