Apple Pancakes

Don't these sound delicious?

3-4 tart apples

2/3 cup melted butter

2/3 cup sugar

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

Peel and core apples. Slice thin and saute in 1/3 cup butter for 5 minutes. Mix 1/3 cup sugar and spices and add to apples. Cover & cook 10 minutes. Cool. Mix eggs, milk, flour & salt. Beat with rotary beater for 2 minutes. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in 10-in ovenproof skillet. Pour batter into pan. Bake in preheated oven (450) for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon 2 tablespoons melted butter over surface. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar. Spread apple mixture over half the surface; fold in. Spoon 2 tablespoons melted butter over top; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar.

The recipe originally recommended puncturing the pancake as it puffs up in the oven. I like puffy pancakes, so I have eliminated that step.
