Baked Apple Pancake

When it's a special day for someone you love ~ birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, your anniversary ~ whatever it may be it's always a great way to start the day with breakfast in bed.  This recipe is perfect for just that purpose or any day you're looking for an easy and delicious breakfast.

Mother's Day Breakfast ~ baked apple pancake, roses and fresh coffee ~ from

I remember when my oldest son was only 11, I was a single Mom and afraid....not sure of so many things, missing my own Mom who had passed away 9 years earlier, and my JR woke me up (along with his then 2-year-old brother) to breakfast in bed.  Eggs (slightly burnt), toast (sorta burnt) and coffee were on a cutting board (the tray).   They made a card for me and came into my room with huge smiles across their faces.  

That morning will always be one of my favorite memories as a Mom and to this day makes me smile from ear-to-ear! So, whether you surprise Mom with this recipe or something else, you'll make her happy.

One more thing to make this breakfast a success ~ don't forget the coffee! If you know me at all you know I love good coffee.  When I used to drive my oldest son to his first job some mornings I was up at 5:30 a.m. to get him there by 6 o'clock.  Thankfully, across the street from where he worked there was a Dunkin’ Donuts.

    Happy Belated Mother's Day, Mary Beth!!!


    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thanks so much, Diane! It was so good. I had to stop myself at one serving but thankfully, my boys finished it off for me 😉 There was nothing left and I so agree about the aroma of coffee. It is one of my favorite scents by far.

      Blessings to you as well ~ hugs, mb

    Yum! I've made a baked pancake that had berries in it, but this one is made differently. Sauteing the ingredients on the stove before baking them always adds more flavor. This is a recipe I'll have to try!

    Hope you had a nice Mother's Day, Mary Beth!
