These cakes were so good we are going to make them in place of pancakes. Of course they will taste the best if you use your own applesauce as I did. Great for the holidays. Try srinkling some confectionery sugar on top! Read More

These were very easy to make, but a touch plain. I switched the amounts of white and whole wheat flour for a more hearty flavor, and also added one small coarsely chopped granny smith apple (with peel) and a pinch of salt. Right before serving, I drizzled with low-sugar maple syrup and sprinkled with wheat germ. I bet these would be good with chopped nuts or other dried fruits too! Read More

Wonderful. I used white flour 'cause that's all I had and added 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Skipped the sugar and added 1/2 chopped fresh apple. Moist delicious. Terrific! Read More

I made this for my mom who is a diabetic and she loved it. Instead of adding 2 teaspoons of surgar I lightly sprinkled confectioners surgar over the top. I will definatly be making this more often. Read More

I can see how people think this is a bland recipe BUT if you serve them as 'pancakes' they would be wonderful with maple syrup. Making them as thin as possible will definitely help with the blandness problem as well. For the kids or even themed parties try placing a cookie cutter on your griddle and pour your batter into that to get cute shaped cakes!:) Read More

5 stars for delicious and nutritious. The only thing I changed was to add a chopped Granny Smith apple. My husband took a bite and gave me a suspicious look until I explained they they were healthy and had whole wheat flour and no oil in them. So he's been munching on them all morning. Read More
