1 tablespoon butter or margarine
3 apples, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup raisins
¾ cup unbleached or all-purpose flour
⅓ cup sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups milk
2 eggs
1 egg white
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Melt the butter or margarine in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples. Cook for 2 minutes, or until slightly softened.

3. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Cook for 5 minutes, turning occasionally, or until the apples are tender when pierced with a knife.

4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt.

5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, egg white, and vanilla extract. Add to the flour mixture. Whisk just until smooth. Pour into the skillet with the apple mixture.

6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed. Remove to a rack to cool for 5 minutes.

7. To serve, cut into wedges. With a pancake turner, lift each wedge and turn, apple side up, onto a plate.
