Dulcich Baby Grape – Apple Mini Skillet

Desserts , Sides

A light and fluffy baked style pancake

To make 4 count, 6” Mini Skillets you will need:
• 4 cups flour
• 4 cups milk
• 8 large eggs
• 20 Pretty Lady red seedless grapes, halved
• Stick of butter

Heat oven to 425 degrees
Whisk eggs, milk, & salt together in a bowl, then add flour until smooth. Coat each oven safe skillet with melted butter to create a “non stick” pan. Pour mixture into skillet, place 5 grape halves around center then cook on stove-top without touching for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and place in oven for 13 minutes and do not open the door. At 13 minutes reduce heat to 350 and let bake an additional 22 minutes or until puffed up & golden brown.

To make Grape-Apple Compote you will need:
• 10 Pretty Lady red seedless grapes, halved
• 10 Pretty Lady green seedless grapes, halved
• 1 cup diced Pink Lady apples
• 1 tsp vanilla
• ¼ cup white or brown sugar
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• ½ cup butter
• ¼ cup water (if needed)

While your Mini Skillet is baking (and this can be done ahead of time and stored in the fridge up to 5 days)
Melt ½ cup butter on medium heat in small sauce-pan. When the butter is melted, add the sugar, once sugar is dissolved, add the rest of your ingredients except for water. Cook for about 1-2 minutes on medium heat then, reduce to a very low simmer until fruit is soft but has not lost composition. Add a touch of water at a time if the fruit is not releasing enough water on its own but do NOT make it a liquid.

When your Mini Skillet is done baking, serve immediately before pancake falls, then top with Grape-Apple Compote.
