A Great Recipe for Breakfast

After working for so many years in the food industry, having my own restaurant and then working with Whole Foods I pretty much have lost any interest in cooking. I do still enjoy baking and making breakfasts for those special mornings. Here's a great recipe I have adapted which originally came from The Vegetarian Epicure (feeds 4-6): German Apple Pancake 1. peel and slice up 4 apples and saute in 1 T butter with 1/4 cup brown sugar and cinnamon til soft and somewhat carmelized--set aside 2. whisk together 3 eggs with 3/4 cup of unbleached flour then add 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 t salt. It should be a very smooth batter 3. melt 2 T butter in a large iron fry pan -- add batter 4. put fry pan (and batter) in 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Be prepared to prick it with a fork when it rises in a bubble formation 5. turn down oven to 350 degrees and continue baking til done (around 15 minutes) 6. turn out on a serving plate and spread with softened cream cheese; add the cooked apples 7. fold it in half like you would an omlette and sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately with maple syrup
