Rustic Apple Oven Cake

I'm in awe. I don't even know where to begin with this one. The ease of this dish combined with it's rustic presentation, airiness, and not-too-sweet flavor make for a beautiful dessert or elegant breakfast.  This was literally one of the quickest desserts I had ever made and just recently again, I made it for breakfast.  The other beauty of it is that you most likely have all of the staple ingredients on hand!  Definitely a keeper and one that I do repeatedly.  

You begin this simple dish by combining brown sugar and cinnamon in a cast iron skillet with melted butter.  Next add 1 peeled, cored, sliced apple to the sultry brown mixture and saute the apples for a few minutes, letting them coat themselves in the syrupy goodness.

As they are sizzle on the stove, throw the rest of the ingredients (eggs, flour, milk, salt) in a blender to combine.  Pour the batter over the apples and put the skillet into the oven until the pancake-like dessert is puffed up and browned.  Top with a dusting of powdered sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon.  It is simply divine, and yet ridiculously simple.  Apple Oven Cake - a must for any apple lover!
