Puffed Apple Pancake

This is a perfect fall  weekend breakfast,just add some bacon cooked with maple syrup,and a pot of coffee!It comes from Martha Stewart,and it tastes delicious!It reminds me of a bread pudding or a rich french toast.What a great way to use all of the delicious apples from your local farmer's market.

6 eggs
1-1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg(freshly grated,if possible)
1 stick of butter
3 apples,sliced thin(gala works great)
1 tbsp brown sugar
powdered sugar
    In a medium bowl combine the eggs,milk and vanilla.Mix well.Add the flour,cinnamon,sugar and nutmeg.
MIx until batter is combined and only slightly lumpy.
  Place the butter in a 9X13 pan,and place ina 425 degree oven for about one minute,until the butter is just melted.Place the apples in the pan on top of the butter,in a single layer.Don't worry about being precise,once the batter goes in the apples are going to go where they want!Return to the oven and bake for 4 minutes,until the butter is bubbly.
   Pour the batter over the apples,then sprinkle the brown sugar on top.Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes,until golden and puffed.Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
