- 2 lg. eggs, yolks and whites separated
- ¼ c. sugar
- 1 c. flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ c. milk
- ½ c. sparkling water (like San Pellegrino or other carbonated water)
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1 lg. apple, thinly sliced (granny smiths work well)
- Powdered sugar and maple syrup for serving
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, flour, baking powder, milk, carbonated water and salt.
- In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites, using a hand-mixer until soft peaks form. Gently fold the batter into the whipped egg whites.
- Heat the butter in a 10-inch cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted and bubbling, pour in the batter. As it cooks add the sliced apples overlapping in a circular shape. Make it look nice.
- Cook for a few minutes, running a spatula around the edges to lift and check for doneness. Once it is lightly browned, carefully flip the pancake, or place a large plate on top and flip the pancake out and slide it back into the pan to cook the other side.
- Cook a couple minutes more than turn out onto a serving dish, apple side up. Cut into wedges and top with powdered sugar and or syrup. Enjoy!
