Also known as a Dutch baby, this is a terrific ‘special day’ recipe. If you are strapped for time, you can start it the evening before and pretty much pop it in the oven. The presentation is excellent! You can shorten the preparation time by using apple pie filling, but the crisp of new apples really makes it.
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.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Melt butter in a 10 inch oven proof 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. Line the pan with apple slices. Sprinkle remaining sugar over apples. Place pan over medium-high heat until the mixture bubbles, then gently pour the batter mixture over the apples.
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.

Eat healthy breakfast to start the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my day off healthfully. The sweet hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your refrigerator next to the milk or on the bench next to your cereal pan , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
