Martha's German Apple Pancakes

This morning I decided to make the German Apple Pancakes I saw on the Martha show yesterday. Mmmm... they're delicious! They turned out really well and are GREAT with some whipped cream on them. They'd definitely make a great dessert for company, if you ask me. Anyway- I thought I'd post the recipe. You can find it on her website, too.

German Apple Pancakes
Makes 6 pancakes

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for tin, and 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

5 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus more for tin

2 Granny Smith apples (about 1 pound)

1/4 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

3/4 cup milk

Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 450°. Butter inside each muffin cup of a 6-cup nonstick jumbo muffin tin; coat with granulated sugar.
2. Peel, core, and slice apples into 12 wedges, then cut wedges into 3 pieces. In a medium bowl, toss apples with brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon.
3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apples and sauté, turning occasionally, until caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove pan from stove; let cool 5 minutes. Divide caramelized apples among prepared muffin cups. Set aside.
4. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, eggs, and milk; process for 3 minutes.
5. Pour batter over apples. Transfer tin to oven; reduce heat to 400°. Bake until pancakes puff up, about 15 minutes.
6. Remove tin from oven; invert onto a flat work surface. Dust with confectioners’ sugar; serve immediately.
