Baked Sweet Apple Pancake

I think it is safe to say this breakfast item is going to be a series now. I planned to make one for Lola last week but the Lobster Mac & Cheese kind of got in the way. This reminds me of the sweet apple pancake of Polly's except that they make it sweeter and more dense.

The procedure is no different from the baked pancakes I made except cooking/softening the apples first in a little brown sugar and butter. Then just arrange the slices on top of the batter and bake for 25 minutes at 400 degrees F. Remember to put a tent on top when it starts browning fast and it's not cooked through.

This is Saturday's breakfast with eggs and turkey bacon- it is over the top and it's not even expensive.
