If you're looking for a nice breakfast that can be cooked at home, outdoors or camping the Apple Pancake is a great way to go. The dish is filling and has a great flavor. I love pancakes and this one is a favorite of mine. Keep in mind this is not a diet pancake, but for a once in awhile indulgence it's a good choice.
Using a handy dandy apple peeler, corer and slicer will make life a little easier. If you don’t have one then get yourself a sharp knife and do it the old school way.
You can eat this great tasting apple pancake in the cast iron skillet or flip it out onto a place and eat it that way too.
What’s really great about this dish is it’s multifunctional. Eat it in the morning for breakfast or top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert at night.
