Meet the Cook: Not only are these an old family favorite, they're a neighborhood favorite as well. We have several bachelor neighbors who all rave about them. My husband (who built an addition on our house to hold all of my cookbooks!) and I have three grown children and one grandchild. -Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

"These didn't turn out very well. The batter was so thick, it was really hard to get the pancake to cook all the way through and there wasn't enough apple flavor. I didn't make the syrup because I didn't have any apple juice, but I've made other apple pancakes and used regular syrup and they've tasted great. I guess I'll stick with my other recipes."
