Apple Oven Pancake

pancakeThis recipe, perfect for tart or sour apples, comes to you from Rise Up Homestead. Jessie served this in the morning so that we would have the energy for a long day of catsup making. Enjoy this oven pancake with some crispy bacon and a strong cup of coffee, or in the evening with tea and spoon of cream drizzled over the top.
