I made my first Dutch Pancake back in 8th grade Home Ec class.  I had some apples on hand and thought this would be a perfect mash-up.  Usually Sunday’s are my husband’s day off work.  I typically will make a breakfast this day instead of the usual cereal, oatmeal, or toast that we have during the week.  We absolutely loved this apple pancake – FYI — it’s definitely a sweet breakfast!

Tip #1:  Recommend using McIntosh, Gala, or Granny Smith apples.  Even better if you use one tart and one sweet!  The only apple I do not recommend is Red Delicious, as they will not hold up in the baking process.

Tip #2:  Highly recommend using Fresh Nutmeg vs. Ground.  Fresh nutmeg has a much stronger flavor and has a much longer shelf life than ground. 

How to Use?  Simply grate the Nutmeg Seed over a microplane and grate as much as you need for a recipe. 

Note:  Since fresh nutmeg has a strong flavor, you might want to use a dash less than noted based on personal preference. I used full amount of fresh in this recipe.
