Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby

From Nates!

·      4 tablespoons butter
·      1 apple
·      1 cup flour
·      1 cup milk
·      1 teaspoon vanilla
·      4 eggs
·      3 tablespoons brown sugar
·      ½ teaspoon salt
·      1/3 teaspoon ground cloves
·      ½ teaspoon ground ginger
·      1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
·      Nutmeg to taste

      Preheat oven to 425* and pull out your blender. In a small bowl mix your sugar and all you spices except salt. Peel your apple. Slice it thinly. In an oven safe skillet, melt your butter. When melted, arrange apples in the pan, cook on medium low. Sprinkle some of the sugar mixture on the apples. Pour the rest of the sugar mixture into the blender. Add flour, then the milk, vanilla and eggs. Blend it up. Pour it over the apples. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Cook for a shorter time for a more custard consistency, longer for more well done. Serve with syrup.
       Alternative method: Fry the apples after slicing them thinly. Melt butter in a baking dish in the oven. Then place the fried apples on top of the butter. Then pour the blended batter over that. Cook as directed.
So my picture looks different than Nates. Why? Because I Forgot. The. Flour. Yep, that's right. Forgot the flour. HA HA HA! Still turned out great and we ate it. Can't wait to try it WITH the four! :D
I made it again WITH the flour. Loved it! DH thought it was much better with the flour, though he never complained about the 1st one I made.

you know if it tastes good without the flour why not? LOL
I have made it and forgotten things so many times... like eggs, or too many eggs or not enough eggs
