Baked Apple Pancake

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Katzen

This is a recipe my Mom used to make for breakfast when I was a kid. It's cinnamon and buttery apples topped with a light "pancake" that is baked in the oven. We used to eat it with maple syrup. Delicious!!!

We enjoyed the recipe, but it turned out a little different than I expected. While it was very light tasting, it didn't puff up the way I thought it would. Also, sauteeing the apples for 5 mins, and then only cooking the combined dish for 10 mins, really wasn't enough time for the apples to get soft - so mine had a slight bite to them. I would use this recipe, in conjunction with others, for brunch.
