Saturday Brunch: German Apple Pancakes

 There's this amazing breakfast place in Denver called The Pancake House that serves one amazing German Apple Pancake and for years I just thought, this is it, I'll never attempt to make this in my life, it just doesn't get better than this. But guys, after a little experimenting with this recipe I think I've come up with a close second. Behold, the German Apple Pancake that will change your Saturday brunch FOREVER.

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla
2 tablespoons of butter
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar divided
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 large apple very thinly sliced
  1. In a large bowl, blend eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Gradually mix in milk, stirring constantly. Add vanilla, melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Let batter stand for 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. On the stove top, melt butter in a 10 inch skillet, brushing butter up on the sides of the pan. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over the butter and saute in the pan. Add apple slices to the skillet and stir. Sprinkle remaining sugar over apples. Place skillet over medium-high heat until the mixture bubbles, then using a pie tin, pour the apple mixture into the pie tin and gently pour the batter mixture over the apples.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for 10 minutes. Slide pancake onto serving platter and cut into wedges.
