1st Day of School Breakfast Table

 I wanted to do something extra special for her 1st Day of 1st Grade. I made sure to make the table extra special by making Belli a Back to School Place setting in hopes of helping to wake her up.  I served some fresh squeezed Orange Juice and Belli's Puffy Apple Pancake.

A great breakfast treat! I let mommy help out with the loud and hot stuff. I enjoy cutting the apple, stirring, tasting and adding lots of powdered sugar like my Babu likes to do!

· 1/2 t ground cinnamon
· 1/4 t ground cloves
· 1/4 t nutmeg
· 1/8 t ground ginger
· 3 eggs, at room temperature
· 1 C milk, at room temperature
· 3/4 C all-purpose flour
· 3/4 t vanilla
· 2 T powdered sugar
Before You Start 
Have an adult preheat oven to 400° and Grease 9-inch dish with butter.
Prepare the Apple
1. Have an adult peel the apple, then cut into quarters and core.
2. Using a table knife (a plastic on works well) and help from adult, cut apple into small chunks. 
Make the Apple Pie Filling
1. With help from an adult, put in a small bowl and stir together 2 T sugar, 1/4 t cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger. 
2. Add the apple chunks and stir until all pieces are covered with sugar mixture. 
3. Pour chunks into pie pan and spread out evenly with hands.
4. Have adult place in oven for 5 minutes. 
Make the Batter 
1. Help adult put remaining 2 T sugar, remaining 1/4 t cinnamon, eggs, milk, flour and vanilla in a blender.*Leave the room if the noise bothers you. 
2. Have the adult, blend mixture on medium speed until well-blended and frothy, about 1 minute. 
Bake the Pancake
1. When apples are done baking, have adult pull out the oven rack and pour the batter evenly over the apples, slide rack back in and close the oven door. Turn on oven light so you can watch pancake puff.
2. Bake pancake until puffed and brown, about 25 minutes. Have adult carefully remove dish from oven and place on cooling rack. Place on serving plates and sprinkle pancake with powdered sugar.
