    About this recipe: This is a baked pancake that you cut into wedges to serve. The caramelised apples at the bottom are a real treat, and it makes for a pretty presentation when dusted with icing sugar. Serve for an indulgent brunch or as a pudding with some ice cream or custard.

    This was the first time I have made anything like this. The flavour is nice, very eggy, slightly sweet and spicy. It was very easy to make and rose beautifully in the oven. Would definitely make again.  -  10 Dec 2010

    I agree very eggy - reminded me of a sweet yorkshire pudding. It wasn't particularly pretty to look out but tasted lovely with some cream. Would definitely make it again and improve it - not because the recipe needs improving but my cooking skills do!!  -  21 Mar 2016

    A great weekend breakfast/brunch recipe. I do not have an ovenproof skillet, so what I did was saute the sliced apples, sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg, then poured the mixture into a prepared 10" glass pie pan. I then poured the pancake mixture on top. Baked as noted in the recipe. The result delicious--and vanished quickly!  -  17 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
