Upside-Down Apple Bacon Pancake

“I frequently cook Sunday brunch for my husband and myself, and I am always experimenting with new recipes. Apples picked from our tree were the inspiration behind these sweet and savoury pancakes, which my husband quickly declared a keeper.” —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In an 8-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels to drain, reserving drippings.
  2. Add apple to drippings; cook and stir over medium-high heat until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with bacon, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder. In a small bowl, combine egg, milk, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour over apples.
  4. Bake until lightly browned, 20-25 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with syrup.
