1 pound (450 grams) Granny Smith Apples (2-3 large), peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch (.5 cm) slices
1 tbsp (15 grams) unsalted butter
1 tbsp (15 grams) granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3 large eggs
1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
2 tbsp (30 grams) unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (65 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp (25 grams) granulated white sugar
Confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar
Softly whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or yogurt
1. Apple Popover: Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C) and place the rack in the center of the oven.
Apples: In a small bowl, mix the sugar with the ground cinnamon. Then in an 8- or 9- inch (20 or 23 cm) heavy ovenproof skillet (preferably nonstick), melt the butter. Add the sliced apples and sugar mixture and sauteed the apples just until tender.
2. Popover Batter: Meanwhile, in your food processor or blender (can also use an electric mixer) place all the batter ingredients. Process for about one minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Once the batter is completely smooth, pour over the sauteed apples.
3. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until the popover is puffed and golden brown. Do not open the oven door until the end of the baking time or it may collapse. Serve immediately with a dusting of confectioners sugar and softly whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or yogurt.
