1 tsp. vanilla extract

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples, ½ cup of the sugar and flavoring or brandy and cook until crisp/tender and glazed over.

Finishing:

Pour half batter into hot pie plate with melted butter; arrange warm apple slices over batter (reserve juices); pour remaining batter over apples. Sprinkle 1 tsp. sugar and a little cinnamon over batter and bake until golden and set in the center, 25 – 30 minutes.

Drizzle with warm reserved apple juices and some ice cream.
