Cooking with Kids: Baked Apple Pancakes

Get the kids to help out with breakfast on the weekends! Baked Apple Pancakes is a great recipe to enjoy on a chilly morning. Remember to supervise your kids all the time, and don’t let them take the pan out of the oven by themselves.  I made these with my niece, Anneke and we had a great time.
