Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg (Not the redhead)
  1. Blend eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt; add milk gradually. Add vanilla, 2 tablespoons butter, and nutmeg, mix thoroughly. Let stand for at least 30 minutes (unless you’re REALLY impatient or hungry).
  2. In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet melt butter, brush onto sides too. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar and spices over butter. Spread apple slices evenly in pan. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Heat over medium heat until mixture bubbles. Slowly pour batter over apples.
