This is a wonderful breakfast treat. I didn’t have enough Golden Del. apples on hand, even though I planned well, so I used 3T. butter instead of 4. It turned out flavored like apple pie, mixed with an omelet, and a pancake. It was awesome. I suggest eating it on day 1 though, that’s when the flavor and rise was the best. Within 30 minutes it falls to a thin height and won’t be as attractive.
