  • 1 lb. apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 5 Tbsp. lactose-free margarine
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3⁄4 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 3⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Combine apples, sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a bowl. Toss to coat the apples.
  • Melt 2 tablespoon margarine in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apple mixture and sauté the apples for 6 minutes or until just soft.
  • Place the remaining margarine in an 8-by-11-by-2-inch baking dish. Put baking dish in the oven until the margarine is melted. Spread apples evenly over the bottom of the dish.
  • Prepare the batter by whisking together the eggs and soy milk in a bowl until well blended. Add flour and salt. Stir until just combined. The batter will be slightly lumpy. Slowly pour batter over apples.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until the pancake is golden brown and puffed.
