As a child my dear belated father would take me to breakfast after church...he would order the big apple and I the baby apple......making this recipe reminded me of a wonderful moment in time...I did alter the recipe a tad by using baking soda to help hold the rise. I do suggest using a glass pie plate to create a beautiful look I remember seeing at the restaurant.
