"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!"

"Being a Weight Watcher, I wanted to keep my points down, so I didn't make the syrup. I think it was a mistake. It probably would've brought in more apple taste. Next time, I will make the syrup. W/O it, the apples were kinda so-so. It needs the apple cider in the syrup. (I also didn't seperate the egg. :-> It was OK.)"

"Great taste and very fluffy. Syrup can be a little too sweet so I recommend putting it on the side and dipping the pancake into it. Also great with regular syrup!"

"I'm lazy and didn't want to separate the egg, so I didn't. They still turned out fine when I just added the whole egg when I was supposed to add the yolk."
