I made an up-side down Apple Pancake, for an afternoon coffee or tea time..which is very easy and so yummy, because it's very fast to make. I also serve it with vanilla ice-cream on the side; it's great for an after dinner dessert and everyone loves it! I hope you like it too. The recipe is at the end of this post.
Hubby also made a country Artisan Italian bread recipe, but only he knows how to make it, since he learned it from an Italian cook that worked at his grandparents house. I haven't learn how because he enjoys making this bread very much..so he takes the credit alone, lol.. I arranged our afternoon, tea or coffee setting at our kitchen breakfast nook... for my mother, Alejandro and me. Ok, here it is.
|I used these pretty brown chargers, my everyday Spanish dinner plates, the hand decorated cake plate, made by us and ivory color flatware to match.|
|The complete place setting.|
|Alejandro made this great Artisan Italian bread, he enjoys making it for the family. We are all fans of it, as it's wonderful with cold-cuts and almost any kind of cheese, butter and marmalade, etc..|
|My Apple Upside-down Pancake. (recipe is at the end of this post). Very easy and fast to make.. aand yummy!|
|The entire place setting and the pretty teacup. Here you can appreciate the embroidery in the blue linen table topper; it's even showing through the amber glass, lol..|
Thank you so much sweet friends for stopping by and making my day!
I also appreciate the wonderful parties such lovely ladies host each week.
2 small Granny Smith apples, or 1 big apple
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, (not margarine)
1 tsp. of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
4 eggs, separate
1/3 cup sugar (for the egg whites)
Peal, core and slice apples and cut in thin wedges and sprinkle some lemon juice so they don't tarnish til you use them. In a heavy skillet place the butter, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon. (don't use margarine because it makes the apples separate from the batter). Now, arrange apple wedges, or slices, all around the skillet on top of the butter mixture. Make two circles, one big and one smaller, until the bottom of the skillet is completely covered with apples, (like the pic) and cook for 3-4 minutes and turn off flame.
With an electric mixer, beat flour, milk, the 2 egg yokes, b.p. and salt. In another bowl beat the egg whites til stiff peaks form and add while beating, 1/3 cup sugar. Fold them into the batter. Pour this mixture evenly on top of the apple wedges and bake it in a preheated oven at 350F- for 15 minutes, or so..check it inserting a toothpick in the middle of cake.
When it's ready remove sides of the pancake with a metal spatula and immediately turn it into a cake plate. You can serve it warm or cold and with vanilla ice cream on the side...if you want, otherwise, alone is perfect too.
