Dutch Apple Pancake

I played around with Dutch Apple Pancake recipes for weeks and just wasn’t happy with the results, until now. This Dutch Apple Pancake is super moist, airy, fluffy and just the right amount of sweetness. I especially love that it’s such a great recipe for the whole family. Being able to make one thing that works for everyone, is such a lifesaver.
