Oven Baked Apple Pancake

With fall just around the corner I've got apple picking...and apple recipes on my mind...
This pancake recipe is a bit different in that you are making just one large pancake and baking it  to serve in's easy to prepare and perfect for a family breakfast or brunch...delicious!

* adapted from a Gooseberry Patch recipe

1 large apple, cored, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
4 eggs
2/3 cups milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter melted and cooled
2/3 cups flour
icing sugar for dusting
1/4 cup maple syrup (optional)

-preheat oven to 350F
-lightly butter a 10-inch pie plate
-in a small bowl toss together the chopped apple with the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and transfer to the pie plate
-bake for  13 minutes, remove from oven and set aside
-turn up oven to 450F
-in a blender mix together eggs, milk, vanilla extract, melted butter and flour until well combined
-pour mixture into pie plate, over the apples and bake for 15 minutes
-allow to cool for a couple of minutes then cut into 8 wedges and serve dusted with icing sugar and maple syrup if using
