this thick and puffy pancake has such a pretty presentation that it gets high praise from family and company alike. Four an extra-special touch, try topping each serving with warm pancake syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.

"I was nervous about this recipe. I followed the recipe with the exception of the cast iron skillet. I used a 9x9 baking dish instead. To my delight it turned out great and my husband liked it.:)"

"Made for a mothers day brunch. My family loves apple pancakes I have been making for years, a Martha stewert recipe. Any way I thought I would make one of each and see which one was liked the best. This one came out on top. It is much easier to make. I did add some Penzy's apple pie spice. I also sprinkled some toffee bits in place of nuts.grandson graves the last piece of this one saying "papa this was the best brunch ever""

Was light and all was thinking would want to remember. Boys are 3 & 5 and will always remember the fun we had and the surprise it created."
