Puffy Baked Apple Pancake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From Very Best Baking website. This uses orange juice in the batter instead of apple cider like the other recipe here on the site plus a few other changes.

I thought this was just ok. I made it just as directed but once I tasted the pancake it just was kind of bland. I spiced it up a bit with powdered sugar on one and caramel ice cream topping on another - then not too bad.
