Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe smells like Christmas! I used a 9" glass pie plate and the sides rose exactly like the photo, but I used the 2Tb butter and followed the directions, exactly.
I used one large golden delicious apple, cut quarter-sized in diameter and very thin. I also used organic, 100% pure maple syrup. I thought it was very sweet, so a small portion goes a long way. The texture of the "pancake" is more like a thick crepe or tender French toast. You can smell when the "pancake" is nearly done baking when you start to smell a nearly burnt egg smell. Don't be tempted to take the pancake out too soon, but don't... let it go for the 14 minutes, or the middle section won't cook through.
this receiped is amazing!! the second time i made it i added chopped raisins and ground nuts on top .. my husband loved it. delicious. thank you land o lakes for this new creation
Back in the dark ages, (read 1970's I fell in love with Bickford's Big Apple Pancake and I've been trying to replicate it since then. My hopes were extremely high when I found this recipe, but the final result just wasn't stellar. The finished product was soggy and leaden, not at all like the Bickford's Big Apple I remember so fondly. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
Pancake was surprisingly tasty, for having such simple ingredients. Mine rose assymetrically, but relaxed back to a normal shape. I don't think a 9-inch pie plate would produce the high-edged version in this site's photo ... it would probably need a much smaller (6-7-inch?) pan to get that effect.

The sauce was nice, too. Not too sweet. I used two apples, and had plenty of sauce. We'll definitely make this dish again.
What a great treat for breakfast. Only thing, My husband says we should have made two. This receipe I will certainly pass on.

What in the World Can You Dip in Chocolate?
January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
