    Your children will think you're a kitchen goddess - and it's great with coffee too!

    This recipe adds apples to what is often called Dutch baby or Bismarcks (in the Silver Palate Cookbook). I would not call it a cake; more like a crepe. Mine turns out puffier than than photo here, then slumps a bit as it cools. We like this for breakfast since it doesn't take long or need to cool much. In fact, it really doesn't work as a make-ahead dish.

    I love this so much! It is so light and fluffy. I made it for a dessert after dinner, and it was just perfect. I will definetly make it again. I love that it calls for ingredients that you always have on hand. Make it tonight!

    So easy, everyone has all the ingredients on hand all the time. So yummy, especially still warm from the oven. This is a perfect winter morning breakfast. It's a cross between an omelet and pancake!

    This is an excellent dessert and was a big hit with guests. Delicious alone or with vanilla ice cream. Surprisingly good given how simple it is to make. And considering it is cooked in a cast iron skillet, it is impressive coming out of the oven. A great recipe to keep in mind when in need of a last-minute dessert (as long as you have an apple on hand).

    For those of us living at higher elevations, (Santa Fe, Denver, Tahoe, etc.), this recipe will not work. I tried it and it came out flat and dried out. A coating of caramel sauce and ice cream helped but they'd be great on their own! Next time PLEASE include high altitude alterations!!!

    I was so excited to bake this dish for breakfast, but it did not turn out what I expected. I just saw a review about high elevation and I complete agree. I am so disappointed!!!

    Our family loves this dish for breakfast. We have changed it up from time to time by using pears instead of apples, adding sliced almonds or chopped walnuts. My husband has also had his served with a little peanut butter every once in a while. We have also doubled the recipe and used a larger pan. Love it!

    Just made this at 9000 ft. and it came out perfectly! So nice and light and not too sweet.

    I loved this one. I used to go to a resteraunt that served this as "apple pancake" but never knew how to make it. Yum!

    This recipe was good, flavor was good. The texture wasn't the best, it was kind of a flan egg type texture.

    A favorite in our house for brunch with 4 eggs and more cinnamon & cloves to spice up the apples (unpeeled). Also good with 2 nectarines. Easily increased with 6 eggs, 3/4 cups each milk & flour.

    Nice presentation, the apple part of it is really good, but the bottom is pretty much a piece of dough sort of like a pancake.

    This was so easy to make. And it was tasty. I made it for a brunch and everyone liked it. I will try it for a dessert next time with vanilla ice cream as suggested by afoxcaintx.
