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."
"i havent yet made this but was wondering what the sugar content is...my husband has chrons and i have to keep it healthy you know."
"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.)"
"These were delicious! A perfect fall breakfast! I loved the syrup!!"
"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!"
"EXCELLENT I didn't separate the egg either."
"Our family loved these pancakes. I made it once without the cider syrup, but that really helps bringing out the apple flavor, so I won't do it without that again."
"Very, very good! The apply cider syrup really makes them taste great! My kids really loved them too."
"Oh My!these were the best tasting pancakes ever. Incredilble tasting cider syrup tp go with thanks!!!!"
"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."
