Yummy Accident

It may not have turned out how I meant for it to but it was sure YUMMY!!!!

First I pre-heated the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
I brushed the bottom of a straight sided tart pan with melted butter, for the flavor, sliced an apple really thinly and linded the pan with them, sprinkled sugar, cinnamon, and cloves over the top of that.
In a separate bowl I mixed up "German Pancake" batter, which is 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour, 6 eggs and I put in a dash of salt, and poured the batter over the top of the apples, etc. in the pan.
Baked for 25 minutes, check, a fork or knife should come out clean from the center.

It took me all of 8 minutes of prep time for a very yummy breakfast, dessert or, at my house, dinner.  It's also pretty healthy since you can control the amount of fat and sugar, it's high in protein and you can use lots of fruits or veggies.

It was supposed to puff more and the apples and spices were supposed to stay on the bottom, I'd done it before but had cooked the apples before pouring the batter on top, now I know, MUST cook apples with the sugar and spices before pouring the batter over them if I want the same results I get when I order it in the restaurant.  Still, it was really yummy and it shaved off about 5 minutes from my prep time, so impatience might win out next time anyway.
