I was bummed out that I didn't have a griddle, but did have a small flat pan around, so used that instead. It still came out fluffy and delicious! It was very easy to make. I followed the directions and took the advice of some of the reviews and adde 1 tsp. on vanilla extract. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the recipe!!
I read previous reviews and followed what some of the others did. For example, did 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg and ground cinnamon, and tossed my diced apples in 1/4 cup maple syrup, and I "lightly" drizzled each plate with the 100% pure maple syrup before serving. One thing I would do differently next time is double the topping as I felt I had more apples than crumbles! Nonetheless, this is a winner. Thank you :) UPDATE: I am also a big fan of fewag rasberries and peaches and could not get over how easy this was to make and how delicious the crumble was, so I doubled everything except the butter. I also added fresh rasberries and used canned "light" peaches. The outcome was a nice suprise! I got extra crumble with my fruit :)
Just wanted to add to the rest of the reviews on here that i substituted the sugar for splenda (NOT for the confectioners sugar in the GLAZE) and it still came out delicious!
This is ideal for a quick, but warm and filling breakfast! I was weary about the 1 tsp. of nutmeg (from reading the reviews on here), so I just LIGHTLY sprinkled the nutmeg (emphasizing on the LIGHTLY) to the rest of the ingredients. Also, I only had multi-grain bread on hand which worked out just fine. THANKS for the recipe :)
This is a great recipe. I had a 1 can of pure pumpkin leftover from Thanksgiving dinner and was able to use it for this recipe. I did substitute the shortening and used unsweetened applesauce. The cookie is very moist and cake-like.
