Heat oven to 375 degrees. Very lightly oil a 10-inch well-seasoned cast iron or enameled cast iron skillet with sloped sides. Peel, core and cut the apples into thin slices. Mix with cinnamon and sugars in a bowl.Stir in buttermilk, eggs and oil just until dry ingredients are moist; do not
over mix. Melt butter in a prepared skillet over medium heat. Add apple mixture (about 5 minutes). Gently pour flour-egg batter over the apples. Bake until the edges are golden, the apples tender, and the pancake puffed, 25-35 minutes. Serve immediately.

Spiced Banana-Walnut Muffins
Recipe created by Edward Espe Brown
Warm, rich, and subtly spiced, these muffins are therapy in a baking tin. Ripe bananas and apple sauce give them loads of flavor while keeping fat to a minimum.
This recipe uses applesauce in place of some of the butter or oil to make these muffins a healthier treat. For the richest flavor, use overripe bananas.
Preheat oven to 350. Line a standard 6-muffin tin with paper liners or grease well; set aside.
Put flour, baking soda, cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt into a large bowl; set aside. Put sugar and butter or oil into a second large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add bananas, applesauce, zest, vanilla, and egg to the sugar-butter mixture, and beat again until combined. Add flour mixture to banana mixture in three parts, stirring well after each addition; fold in walnuts.
Spoon batter into prepared tin; bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
