3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter
6 tart apples, such as Granny Smith, pared and sliced thin, about 1/4 inch

Powdered sugar

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. In small bowl, combine flour, salt and one tablespoon of the granulated sugar. Whisk in the milk, then the eggs, until the batter is smooth and lump-free. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and cook the apple slices with the remaining granulated sugar about 10 minutes or until tender. Mix in raisins and lemon zest and transfer to baking dish. Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm. Makes about 8 servings.
