I made this as part of my family's Sunday big breakfast. We really liked it we thought it was very yummy. I sprinkled my whole dish with 3 teaspoons powdered sugar. I think this would be perfect for brunch. I got this recipe from Bon Appetit. Sherry Sharp of Fremont, California, writes: "The Arroyo Village Inn is a lovely bed-and-breakfast in Arroyo Grande, California. During my recent stay there, I enjoyed the apple pancake made by the inn's owner, Gina. When she brought it to the table, it looked like a puffy soufflé. Once I had cut into it, I could see the sliced apples." This breakfast treat rises like Yorkshire pudding and has the texture of a classic baked pancake. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the pancake after it's baked, if you like.
