TWD - Apple Matafan




For Tuesday with Dorie this week, I made Apple Matafan.  This is a chunky, cakey, apple-packed pancake made entirely in a skillet on the stovetop.  It is sprinkled with icing sugar and optionally, drizzled with maple syrup (of course).

I made one third of the recipe, enough for two.  Here's a peek inside:



It was delicious served warm, though I thought it definitely needed the maple syrup for moisture.  A word of warning - it is also very filling.  Don't be suckered into a double helping unless you are really hungry.

Sounds great. It's new to me but would be delicious any time, I bet.

I'm going to save this for the depths of winter when we need something filling and delicious. I've never heard of it before!

Despite the fancy name, it's just a big apple pancake, right?! I loved this and will make it for a crowd for brunch again (it's very filling!).

Pancakes are beloved in my house so I think this is going to be a winner. Thanks for the tip on serving size. Now should I make a full or half recipe? Hum...
