I’m making myself late for a picnic to post this delicious recipe, lifted from Betty Crocker herself.

2 Tbs butter
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 apple, peach or pear, sliced (about 1 cup)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt

1. Heat oven to 400. Melt butter in pie plate in oven; brush butter over bottom and sides.

2. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over melted butter. Arrange thinly sliced fruit over sugar.

3. Beat eggs slightly in medium bowl with wire whisk or hand beater. Beat in flour, milk and salt just until mixed (do not overbeat or pancake may not puff – the horror). Pour batter over fruit.

4. Bake 25-30 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Immediately loosen edge of pancake and turn upside down onto heatproof serving plate.

Heaven. Sheer heaven.
