Last time I went to the grocery store, I bought 3 HUGE bags of apples.
Yes, I am the girl who buys all of her fruit out of season. Everyone was lining up around the cherries and peaches, and here I was with my cart full of apples.
I mean, that was soo 10 months ago, am I right?
But for one reason or another, I was craving all of the apples and wouldn’t leave the grocery store until I had enough for a month.
But with all of these apples, there is always the problem of: what can a house of 2 people do with all of these apples?
Well my friends, prepare for an onslaught of apple recipes. In the summer. Because that is what I do.
I love breakfasts that come together really quickly, and use simple ingredients that you probably have on hand. I am not one to go shopping specifically for an ingredient. It’s either in my house, or I am making something else.
The maple yogurt cream made these extra special. I think next time I make this (and yes, food bloggers do make things more than once if they are good enough) I will make the maple yogurt cream with Greek Yogurt to make it creamier.
And since this recipe uses only 1 apple, I can make this at least 30 more times with all of the apples I just bought!
Apple Skillet Popover with Maple Yogurt Cream tastes just like a pancake without the effort. This recipe is like dessert for breakfast.
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar, divided
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
- 1 medium apple, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp salted butter
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Allow the eggs and milk to stand at room temperature for around 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
In a small bowl, mix together the apples, 2 Tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon until fully combined.
Place the butter on a cast iron skillet, and heat for 2 minutes. Swirl the butter around the pan, then add the apple mixture. Bake for 10 minutes or until the apples begin to soften and the butter is bubbly.
Meanwhile, add the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, salt, and remaining sugar and cinnamon to a blender, and blend until mixture is frothy.
Pour the batter over the hot apples. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until puffy and golden brown.
Make the yogurt cream by mixing together yogurt, mix together the “Maple Yogurt Cream” ingredients together until combined.
Dust popover with powdered sugar and cut into wedges. Serve with yogurt cream.
