"I prepared this for my husband and I when we wanted a really nice breakfast and it was a winner - I added a few fresh strawberries to the top and with the dusting of powdered sugar it was to die for -a real warmer"

"This was way too thick for a 9 inch pie plate. Perhaps a 10 inch would work better, but even after cooking it longer than stated this was still gooey and tasted under-done."

"My Granddaughter (8 yrs. old) loves to cook with me. I am always looking for something simple. She practices her reading as she reads the recipe all the way through. Then we discussed the process. We made the sauce first so she did not have to worry about it while the pancake was baking. I stood back and watched and played consultant. It was wonderful but she topped it with whipped cream instead of confectioner?s sugar."

"I had strawberries to use up & this recipe fit the bill!! I took the cook's suggestion & used 1/2 cup skim milk, 2 eggs & 1/2 cup flour. I skipped the butter part altogether & used nonstick cooking spray. It baked for about 17 min & the vanilla smelled wonderful! My husband really enjoyed it as a special breakfast; thank you for sharing!! My 1st time making a puff pancake & it was very simple w/ great directions!"

"It was very good. I will make it again. It is very easy to make. I didn't have any fresh strawberries so I used strawberry pie filling."

"It was wonderful, but I did use splenda in place of sugar to cut a few calories. I want to try it even with whole wheat flower."
