I think that the Apple Pancake recipe should be made in a cast iron skillet - the old fashioned pan your grandmother used. Maybe it's just that it feels traditional to me but other pans that I have used are simply not heavy enough.
When you buy a cast iron pan you need to cure it to keep food from sticking. Here's how:
It is best to clean any porous skillet without detergent because soaps strip the oils (and thus your “cure”) from the pan. Simply rinse the pan with hot water and wipe clean. For food that is stuck to the pan scrub gently with salt or a plastic scrub pad.
