Reviews for Apple Pancakes with Cider Syrup
"These were really good. I especially liked the syrup! I doubled the recipe, and still barely had enough for 8 pancakes that were about 6 inches in diameter. They come out thick and dense, but very good!"
"Perfect for a chilly fall morning! My family loved these!"
"I added finely chopped walnuts. Delicious!"
"A requested breakfast in the fall"
"The pancakes are wonderful. The syrup is way too sweet. Will be changing that recipe around a bit I think."
