- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 4 teaspoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (about 2)
- 4 eggs separated
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
In large ovenproof skillet, stir together 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the sugar, the butter, nutmeg and 1 tsp (5 mL) water over medium heat until melted. Add apples; cook, gently stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with 2 tsp (10 mL) water. Remove pan from heat, shaking to loosen apples from bottom. Spread apples evenly in pan; set aside.
In large bowl, whisk together eggs yoIks, 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the sugar and vanilla until pale yellow. Add flour; whisk for about 30 seconds or until thickened.
In separate bowl, beat egg whites with remaining sugar until stiff peaks form; gently fold into yolks in 2 additions just until blended. Pour over apples, smoothing with spatula. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for about 10 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
