The taste of these was really nice. Warning - watch the heat of your griddle - I usually use a 1/4 cup measure for pancakes and did so with these but the bottom tries to burn before the top is set which makes flipping them rather messy. After a couple of disasters I started making smaller pancakes, about the size of a silver dollar and that worked much better. I think it is the natural sugar from the apples that causes the quick browning - the smaller size really helped the top to set and make it easier to flip them. Read More

You have to be VERY carful with the heat. It takes forever for the inside of the pancake to cook. I tried making them small and big to see which one works best but for someone who is somewhat new to making pancakes this is not a good recipe to start off with. Read More

these were great and pretty easy (if not a bit time consuming) for a novice like myself, however the amount of salt seemed quite high so i cut it in half. STILL WAY TOO SALTY! i will definitely try these again but just a pinch of salt is enough a quarter tsp at the most! also i topped with the sauteed apples recipe also found on this site, amazing! my whole family loved them!

This thin batter is more of a Swedish pancake and should be very thin. We loved this recipe. Read More

It looked interesting to use whole apples but the batter is about as thick as water. They don't cook all the way through and burn on the outside. Very frustrating. Would NOT recommend Read More

I liked it alot but I did change it like instead of 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour I put in 1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour and I put 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and only 1/ 2 teaspoon of salt and I added 3 tablespoon of brown sugar and I like the end result Read More

Very good! Made these with the Apple cinnamon syrup recipe on here, cooked exactly to what the recipe said, I used ~1/4 cup per pancake and I got 17 pancakes out of it. Read More

I’ll admit I didn’t try the original recipe first. I read reviews and went with majority. I do regret using the blender for the whole process tho. Next time I’ll use my food processor for the apples and then add all ingredients to my stand mixer bowl. I used 1.5 cups flour, 1 cup milk, 1 large Fuji apple, 2.5 tsp baking powder, 1/4tsp salt, 1.5tsp cinnamon, 5.6TBS melted butter, 2 eggs. Flavor is on point. Trying a lower temp on the griddle for the second batch so the middle cooks. Will definitely play with the basic recipe to find my own. Read More
