2 large eggs, room temperature
2 T melted unsalted butter, cooled slightly
1 small Granny Smith apple
1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 T unsalted butter
2 T pure maple syrup or honey
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, cardamom, and cinnamon.
Place an 8-inch cast iron skillet in oven for 5 minutes.
While skillet is in the oven, peel, core, and thinly sliced the apple and place in a small bowl.
Add the lemon juice and gently mix to coat the apple with the juice.
Take skillet out of the oven and add the butter to the hot skillet to melt.
Arrange the apples in a single layer in the bottom of the hot skillet.
Drizzle apple slices with the maple syrup or honey.
Sprinkle in half of the bacon bits and pour the batter over the apple-bacon mixture.
Sprinkle on the rest of the bacon bit and bake in oven for 25 minutes.
Maple syrup is also delicious drizzled over the pancake.
