  6. Arranged the cooked apples in the skillet into an even layer, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, and then pour the batter over the apples.
  7. Bake at 400 uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
  8. When done, loosen the apple pancake around the edges with a spatula, place a serving dish upside down over the pancake and then flip it over. Carefully pull the skillet away, leaving the apples on top.
