Adapted from Apples, 50 Tried & True Recipes, by Julia Rutland.

Preheat oven to 400ºF


4 eggs
3/4 c whole milk
3/4 c plain yogurt
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c whole wheat flour
3 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla


4 Spencer or other New England apples, cored and sliced
1/2 c sugar
3 T butter
2 T bourbon or brandy

In a large bowl, whisk together batter ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, lightly stir apples and sugar together until apples are coated.

Melt 3T butter in a 10-inch, ovenproof skillet over low to medium heat. Add apples and bourbon. Sauté 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has dissolved and apples are beginning to soften.

Whisk batter again before pouring over apples to prevent it from separating. Place skillet in oven and bake 35-40 minutes, until edges are golden brown.

Serve warm or cold, sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar.
