Melt two tablespoons of the butter and set aside. Combine eggs, sugar, salt, flour, milk and melted butter in a bowl, mix well until smooth and pass through a sieve.

Heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a 10-inch sauté pan. When the butter starts to brown lightly add apple, cinnamon and lemon juice. Sauté mixture until apples are cooked halfway and golden brown. Pour pancake batter over apples. Bake pancake in a 550° F oven.

Apple pancake takes about 12 to 15 minutes to cook. The pancake should souffl? up around the rim of the sauté pan and should turn a nice golden brown. Servewith warm syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
