The Willows Raised Apple Pancake

From THE WILLOWS BED AND BREAKFAST
Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients:

4 jumbo eggs, separated
2 Tbs. sugar
4 oz. buttermilk
4 Tbs. oat flour
2 Tbs. cake flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
2 large apple, peeled and grated (I use Golden Delicious)
2 Tbs. Lemon juice
2 Tbs. butter
cinnamon sugar
4 Tbs. walnuts, chopped
confectioner's sugar

Method:

Preheat oven to 375F. Separate eggs. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a small bowl. Peel and grate apple in separate bowl. Add lemon juice to apple. Whisk egg yolks until foamy. Add buttermilk to the egg yolks and mix thoroughly. Add dry ingredients to the yolk/buttermilk mixture. Mix the batter into the grated apple. Whip egg whites to stiff peak, adding the sugar to sweeten the meringue. Gently fold in the egg whites to your apples.

In a 10" non stick fry pan, melt the butter. Pour in your batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Toss on your chopped walnuts. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and dust with confectioner's sugar.

Cut into four wedges and serve immediately.
