How to Make a German Apple Pancake (Dutch Baby)

I remember always getting so excited when my mom would make this for "brinner" for us to eat when she and my dad were going on a date.

Not quite sweet enough to be dessert, but more special than just a pancake.

A cast-iron pan works best!

It tastes pretty eggy and filling, and is obviously great in the fall, during apple season! I think I made this back in September or October, that's how long it took me to post. :)

-1/2 c butter, divided
-1 lb. apple, peeled and sliced thinly
-1/4 c sugar
-cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

for the pancake:
-3 large eggs
-3/4 c milk
-3/4 c flour
-1/2 t salt

-powdered sugar


(Preheat oven to 450 F)
1) Saute apples in 1/4 c butter. Add sugar and spices; this is your filling.
2) Beat together the remaining ingredients to make a batter.
3) Melt about 1 1/2 T butter into 1 large or 2 small oven-proof skillets. Pour batter in when skillet is hot.
4) Put batter in oven and bake for 15 min., then lower temperature to 350 F.
5) Bake about 10 more minutes.
6) Remove from oven, put filling in, fold over, and spread on 2 T butter and powdered sugar.
