Puffed Apple Pancake

The Menu:
Puffed Apple Pancake

The Original Recipe:
I found this on BabyCenter Cooking board, again. I just love that place. They give new recipes, but they also review them, so you sort of know what you are getting before you try it and others opinions about what it is like. So, here is my opinion, My kids hate eggs, so they didn't really care for this, but they ate it complaining the whole way. I didn't have to force them to eat, lol, so take that as it reads, ha-ha. I think they liked it, but because it was so eggy, they complained??? My oldest ds loved it. He thought it was a french toast bake. It just plain out confused me. It wasn't pancakey at all, but it was good, lol. I will probably make it again, with more of a pancake and less of an eggy topping. The apples were great.
