This oven pancake has a moist, almost custardy texture. It’s wonderful as is but would also be delicious topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt. This is a great recipe to serve for a causal brunch or to make for overnight guests, because it’s easy to mix up in a blender and assemble in a pie plate. To get a head start, you can sauté the apples the night before. Here, we’ve called for Gala apples because they hold up well when sautéed but Braeburn apples could be used in their place. If you’d prefer a variety with more tartness, use Granny Smith.
