Reviews for Gingerbread Pancakes with Fruit Topping
"Since we love pancakes, we were eager to try the gingerbread pancakes. We will be making these again!!"
"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!"
"Nice option for a special occasion breakfast."
"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."
"I like pumpkin pancakes much better. These were good but nothing special IMO."
"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!"
