Baked Apple Pancake

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law a few years back, I really never had a “need” to make this and it never was something that jumped out at me as OMG I want to make that, but am I sure happy that she gave it me, and I decided to make it a few months ago, it is now almost a weekly staple for breakfast.  It is easy to put together, one baking dish to clean afterward, and everyone likes it.

You can make it with apples, blueberries, pears…ect. You can put it together the day before and then pop it in the oven in the morning.  You can serve it with maple syrup, homemade cinnamon syrup(recipe below), powdered sugar, or nothing. It is good just on its own!
