Gluten-Free Apple Oven Cake + Recipe

This delicious oven cake is like a giant, puffy pancake!  It comes together very quickly and is the easiest baked good I make.  It's fantastic for breakfast or dessert! 

The recipe is very simple.  You cook the apples slightly on the stove top with the butter and cinnamon.  The apples smell amazing at this point! 

Stir the batter together quickly with a fork or whisk, then pour over the apples in the skillet.  Pop in the oven and set a timer for fifteen minutes!

The cake is done when the edges are browned and the whole thing looks puffy.  Sprinkle with a little lemon juice, powdered sugar and enjoy while warm!
