      Delicious!! I have to agree, the added vanilla sauce really puts this over the top. I made 1/2 of the recipe using one large granny smith apple. What a great breakfast. This does take more effort than a standard German Pancake but well worth the effort. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
