    Hey Jude's Note:

    I love this pancake! Good apples to use would be Granny Smith, Jonagold or McIntosh. If you have access to heirloom apples, choose some that have some tartness to them. This recipe is adapted from "The Pancake Handbook".

    1. 1
      Combine apples, sugar, 2 T of the lemon juice and cinnamon in a medium bowl; toss to coat apples.

      Heat oven to 450 degrees.

    5. 5
      Melt remaining 4 T of the butter in an oven-proof 10-inch skillet (a well-seasoned cast iron skillet is good) until just beginning to brown, about 2 minutes; spread apples in bottom of pan, pour batter over apples.

      I reviewed this about 2 years ago when I first made it, and have made it manny times since. This is a VERY delicious Apple Pancake. We enjoy it every time I make it. I have found that I can cook the apple in the skillet then I bake the pancake in the same skillet. I do add more cinnamon than as called for as we love the flavor of cinnamon also I use splenda instead of sugar. This is very good served with maple syrup and a little lemon squeezed over the top, YUMMY. Thank you Judy, for this delicious recipe that we have enjoyed many times.

      Well, there goes my low-carb diet! I was craving for Original Pancake House's apple pancakes and decided to make one with less carbs and calories. I made this with Splenda and no confectioner's sugar and still tasted great! It satisfied my carb craving...temporarily, of course! Thanks Hey Jude!

      We usually half this recipe... but it is great. We use orange juice instead of lemon juice and it doesn't seem to make a difference. It's turned out a few different ways, but always good!
