Cranberry Apple Pancake

My neighbor invited me over for breakfast yesterday and she made the most fabulous oven pancake ever. It came from a Better Crocker's Dieter's cookbook and it was soooo good. I made it this morning for the boys and they ate two helpings. It looks fancy as well as taste delicious. Here's a picture of what was left.
Cranberry Apple Pancake
Preheat oven to 350F.
2 T butter
1 small apple, skinned and chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp orange peel
1/4 c orange juice
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
Place butter in 9" pie plate and place in oven to melt butter. Remove and sprinkle apples and cranberries. Set aside. In the meantime, place brown sugar, orange juice, and peel into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes. Pour over fruits mixture.
In a separate mixing bowl, add remaining dry ingredients and mix together. Make a well in the middle. Measure buttermilk out in a measuring cup and add egg. Mix. Add wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just blended. Pour over apple-OJ mixture. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Immediately invert onto large plate. Serve warm.
