"This was very yummy! I think next time though, I'm going to double the apple & spices part so there is a thicker layer. The top reminded me of an airy slightly more eggy pancake. Not quite like a crepe. I'd definitely make this again. It was delicious."

"I made this recipe for my sister's birthday--and she absolutely loved it! I followed the recipe almost exactly, and was pleased with the result. We had six people, though, and I doubled the recipe (made two pans), so I don't see how the above portions can comfortably serve eight. I will definitely make this recipe again!"

"This recipe was very good. It did taste a lot like eggs though but we ate it with syrup so it masked the eggy taste."

"This was so yummy! Even the non-apple lovers in my family ate it. I had some warmed up the next day and it was even better. Definitly worth the numerous steps!"

"If you read it says "Fold into egg yolk mixture" This means you fold the stiffly beaten egg whites into the egg yolk mixture or vice versa."
