In-season apples, sautéed and baked in an egg socca pancake batter, will fill your home with the aroma of apple pie, without the fuss. This warm and cozy dessert can be made and served in under an hour, and goes beautifully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
Skip the sugar and make this savoury by sautéing onions instead of apples and adding minced chives instead of cinnamon. If you have it handy, drape over some wild smoked salmon when it comes out of the oven.
In medium bowl, whisk eggs until smooth, then beat in milk and vanilla. Whisk in flour, 2 Tbsp (30 mL) coconut sugar, and salt. Reserve.
In cast iron or metal skillet, about 8 to 10 in (20 to 26 cm) in diameter, heat coconut oil or butter over medium heat until melted. Add apples, cinnamon, and remaining coconut sugar; sauteu0301 until apples have softened, about 5 minutes. Reserve half of apples on plate.
While skillet is still hot, add batter to apples in pan and scatter over reserved apples. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until mixture is puffed and golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Custardy French toast drizzled in pure maple syrup is a cozy, cold-weather breakfast classic. We’ve given this recipe a vegan makeover by swapping out eggs in the batter with mashed banana and a bit of ground flaxseed. This clever swap makes the French toast reminiscent of banana bread. Top it off with a decadent drizzle of raspberry syrup and you’re just a quick stint in the kitchen away from breakfast bliss. Citrus swap If you don’t have any bananas around, consider swapping for an orange. In blender, add zest of one large orange along with peeled fruit and other batter ingredients. Blend until smooth and proceed with the recipe as described.
