Cooking Instructions for Frozen Apple Pancake - For best results:

  1. Pre-heat a conventional oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Allow pancake to thaw at room temperature for 15-45 minutes or you can thaw pancake overnight in refrigerator for best results.
  3. Remove pancake from package and then remove tamper proof film and lid but leave in baking tin. Bake Apple Pancake in the tin for 35 to 45 (16oz. size-7") 55-60 (32oz. size-9") minutes on middle rack until pancake rises and turns golden brown in the center (cooking time  is shorter when using a convection oven).   Pancake is done when you insert a toothpick in the center comes out clean. 
  4. We recommend letting the pancake cool for 5 minutes then place a platter over the top and carefully flip pancake onto platter using oven mitts.
  5. Baking times may vary. (Do not microwave)
  6. You be the chef....Half way through bake time you may add your own special ingredients for your own special pancake.  i.e.: chocolate chips, dried fruits, fresh fruits, bacon bits, cream cheese chunks, marshmallows.....etc.
  7. Now you can bake your pancakes "on the grill" preheat your grill to 375F.  Our pancakes bake upside down in the pan so please do not place directly over open flame.  i.e. If your grill has three burners then set the outside burners between "low" and "med" and the center burner should be set to the "off" position.  Remove all packaging and place the pancake on the center of the grill and close grill cover.  Set your timer to 35-45min. depending on how long you thawed out the pancake.  Keep the lid closed during baking of the pancake to keep grill at 375F.  Baking times vary by grill! You are looking for a golden brown center and a toothpick inserted in the middle to come out clean.  Let pancake rest 5 min. and flip the pancake on to a plate and serve.
