"I only made the pancakes, not the syrup. They had a good texture but not a lot of taste. Maybe I should use a different type of apple or make the syrup...I think nuts would be a good addition too."

"We have retested this recipe again and agree that the original amount of milk was too high. It has been adjusted to 1-1/4 cups for a better batter consistentcy.

"I just used the pancake recipe on the Bisquik box and added chopped apple. It was great, don't need all the extra ingredients, if you ask me. Like to keep things simple"

"Way too much milk -- had soupy batter!! The biscuit mix recipe called for less milk. I ended up adding about another cup of biscuit mix to even get the batter to set up like pancakes. Also didn't add any lemon peel."
