  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 medium Gala apples
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, in 4 pieces
  • 6- ounces fresh raspberries or blueberries, these can be left out, if desired
  • Ricotta Cream, optional, see below (You can also use whipping cream or ice cream if it's a dessert!)
  • Cinnamon Sugar, optional


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (Make sure that the oven rack is in the center spot.)
  • Put a 12-inch cast iron skillet in the oven as it is heating.
  • In a Nutri-Bullet® or blender, blend together the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and 2 Tablespoons of the sugar until well mixed. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl mix together the remaining 2 Tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • Peel and core the apples then slice into ⅛" slices.
  • Put the apple slices into the cinnamon mixture and toss until well coated.
  • When oven is heated, remove the skillet and add the butter. Let it sizzle and melt. (It's okay if it browns a little.)
  • Then add the sliced apple mixture and stir until all the apples are well coated with the butter.
  • Push the apples away from the edge of the skillet so there is about a 1-inch clearance between the apples and the edge of the pan.
  • Pour the batter into the skillet around and over the apples.
  • Sprinkle the berries on top.
  • Return to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • When done, place skillet on cooling rack for about 10 minutes then slice and serve with the Ricotta Cream and Cinnamon Sugar.

Ricotta Cream

  • In a small bowl whisk together 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese, 3 Tablespoons maple syrup and ¼ teaspoon salt.

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture

  • In a small bowl mix together 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar with 1 Tablespoon cinnamon. For easiest use, put in a shaker jar to sprinkle on top of yogurt, ice cream, baked goods, etc.
