Oh, Bergy this is simply Delicious. I was so glad I ran onto you recipe. We use to go to a restaurant in the Bay Area that served Apple pancakes like this. I made them this morning for Breakfast, YUMMMMMM. My DH loved it. (He said to tell you he likes Chicken feet.) Thanks for posting the great Recipe.

This was a nice change from the usual breakfast fare. It would be great as a dessert with ice cream or caramel sauce as well. I didn't have a cast iron skillet, so I prepared the apples in one of my other pans and dumped everything into a ceramic baking dish. I cooked it for 25 minutes at 405 degrees to compensate. I have one question...where does the lemon juice go? It isn't specified in the directions. I left it out because I couldn't tell if it belonged with the apples (like you do with an apple pie) or with the batter. It tasted good anyway.

I got mixed reviews on this, DH and I LOVE it - the apples came out perfect and it puffed up so pretty, the DGSs who are NOT adventurious when it comes to food felt the batter was to eggy - so I'm wondering if for kids like them I could cut the eggs in half, add some baking powder and still get that lovely puff effect. For me it earned 5 stars just for the ease of prep and how pretty it turned out. I made it all in my cast iron skillet (8" I think) and it was the perfect size. If I can get this to turn out for the kids too it'd be the perfect holiday breakfast when we have a lot of company
