Ice and snow. 90 minute delay. Perfect opportunity for a German Apple Pancake.
Combine a couple of eggs, vanilla extract, milk, flour and just a pinch of salt. That is your batter.
Apples spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg? Yes, please.
Brown sugar makes everything better.
The pancake will deflate once it is out of the oven, but the flavor won’t.
You will see all of its appley goodness once it’s turned out.

A little maple syrup goes a long way. Mmm.
