Apple Matafan



I have never made or tasted a matafan. Dorie describes it as a large apple pancake. In the division of labor in my house, pancakes come under my husband's job description. I gave him the recipe and said "you're in charge". Good timing too as I ended up sick this weekend and probably would not have made it otherwise.

My husband made a full recipe; pancakes are beloved as are apples and anything made by Dorie. We easily got 8 servings out of the recipe. My husband admittedly burned it. He said "the recipe called for deeply browned but I think I burned it".  No matter we covered it with powdered sugar, my only contribution, and served it with maple syrup. A wonderful Sunday breakfast.

  7. I know I'd love this one, too! Add apples to anything, and I'm in. And if the butter was truly burnt, I bet you wouldn't have wanted to eat it! Did you ever make the potato matafan for FFwD?
