"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."

  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. 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.
  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.

This was delicious. I did cut the butter and sugar in half, as I often do in recipes, and it turned out great. I also doubled the apples, which seems like too many when you put them in the pan b...

Made for a very interesting flavour that I've never tried before! We didn't have the right size of skillet, so transferred everything to a pie dish for the baking. It rose so much that it spat s...

This is a fabulous oven pancake suitable for guest presentation! I am going to make it for Christmas morning. My family loved it! Please note: This is not a cakey recipe like a stove top pan...

YUM!! I've tried this with fresh apples, and with apple pie filling, tastes much better with fresh. Definitely worth the little extra time it takes to make it with fresh apples!

this was so goooood! i also didnt have a oven proof skillet and used a 10" pie plate, it came out awesome:) definitly will make this again.

This recipe was very good! If you like custard and apples this recipe is a must try. Anyone who is looking for a recipe similar to Walker Brothers Rest., this is NOT the same, but very good. ...
