Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a scrumptious, soul-warming breakfast waiting for you when all the stockings and presents are unwrapped on Christmas morning?

Wouldn’t it be even better if the breakfast had the option of being made ahead, so you wouldn’t have to wash a bunch of additional pots and pans on Christmas? An oven baked apple pancake can be the perfect solution to this dilemma, and it’s easy to make, it reheats well, and most importantly, it tastes delicious!
