The Atrium Restaurant in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a fabulous little "mom and pop" restaurant that serves 25 varieties of pancakes, Belgium waffles, and homemade syrup.

However, I cannot attest to the rest of the menu because this is also the place that serves the sinfully delectable baked apple pancake that I continue to crave and rave about. It was once featured in a 2002 edition of "Taste of Home" magazine along with the recipe, which I copied down when I was there last, awaiting my taste of culinary euphoria:

1 cup pancake mix
2/3 cup milk
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup packed brown suger
1 medium Golden Delicious apple, peeled and sliced

In a bowl, combine pancake mix, oil, and egg.
In an 8 inch over-proof skillet, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar and apple slices; saute until sugar is dissolved. Pour batter over mix.

Cook uncovered over medium heat until bubbles form atop pancake.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 12-17 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto serving plate and serve with syrup.

Serves 1-2.
