The baby is here! I haven’t gotten to see him in the hat yet, but here is a pic of him with the proud grandmother:
It was easy to make. The hardest part was slicing the apples, & he did that. He also made the batter. This is pretty much what I did:
Since that was my part, it’s the only in-progress pic I got. The recipe was easy & straight forward: coat the apples, put them in the dish, mix the batter, pour it over the apples, & bake until bubbly & brown. Then eat.
The recipe recommends topping with syrup or powdered sugar. I tried it with a little syrup & was pleased. I also had some with a dollop of plain yogurt, which I highly recommend. Try vanilla if you don’t care for plain, but I like the tang of plain. However, this pancake certainly doesn’t need any toppings.
The recipe calls for tart apples. We used Jonagold for their mix of sweet & tart, & recommendation for baking, excellent choice.
The only other note I have about the recipe is something you will figure out if you try it, & was pointed out in the reviews, it skips a step. For the batter you mix the wet, you mix the dry, then it goes right to pouring the batter over the apples. There is no step to mix the wet & dry ingredients together. >_< Not hard to figure out though.
Even though this is called a pancake, it tastes more like french toast. It has that eggy flavor.
