Wake 'em up Christmas morning with the delightful aroma of these fluffy pancakes. They've got a great gingerbread flavor and pretty fruit topping! Substitute boysenberry, blueberry or strawberry syrup for the maple syrup if you'd like a tasty change. —Michelle Smith, Sykesville, Maryland

"Made them this morning. My family loved them! Instead of apple pie topping, I warmed some cinnamon applesauce. It was a great compliment to the flavor!"

"Good, but definitely needs salt. I sauteed apples with butter, brown sugar, a little lemon juice and corn starch, instead of using the apple pie filling."

"I made these cakes without the fruit topping, just eating them traditionally with butter and warmed syrup. My husband and I thought they were really yummy and they smell so good while cooking! Next time I might add 1/8 tsp. of salt. But overall, really good."

"It was very good I tried with the maple syrup but not with the apple pie filling, my family said it would have tasted better with vanilla icecream, but it was very good and I definiantly suggest giving this recipe a try!"
