I found another apple in my refrigerator this morning, so I decided to make the Apple Oven Pancake from Sunset magazine, to see how it would compare to the Big Apple Pancake from Gourmet magazine (R.I.P.) that has become a staple in our household.
And the results are ... stick with Gourmet's version. The cinnamon in Sunset's Apple Oven Pancake was a nice touch that I might add to the Big Apple Pancake we so eagerly devour, but the sticky bottom added a chewiness that I most certainly did not prefer, and it didn't hold up nearly as well to the fluffiness of our staple.
So my advice is to stick with Gourmet magazine's much-beloved version.
