"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

4 eggs
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled & thinly sliced
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Confectioners sugar for garnish

Preheat oven to 400. Place two round cake pans in the oven. With electric mixer or blender, beat together the eggs, flour, milk, and salt for 1 minute. Remove the cake pans from the oven and place 2 T. butter in each one. Rotate the pans
so butter melts and coats the bottom and sides of the pans.

Arrange half the apple slices in each pan. Divide batter evenly between the two pans. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over batter in each pan. Bake uncovered until puffed and lightly browned -- 20-25 minutes.

Serve with confectioners sugar and warm syrup if desired.
