Silver Dollar Oat Pancakes

“I combined two of my grandson Joshua's favorite foods-applesauce and oatmeal-into these wholesome little pancakes. He likes the smaller serving size,” writes Margaret Wilson from Hemet, California.

    These were very good! I love the flavor of the apple cinnamon flavor, and they are plenty sweet. I measured out the batter, but it only made 4 servings of 4 pancakes, not 4 servings of 5. 4 of these is the equivalent of 2 whole pancakes, though, so that's an appropriate serving size. I also used a little bit of white wheat flour in place of just white flour because I didn't have enough left. I'll probably just use all white whole wheat flour next time to add more whole grains. These were so moist! Very, very good. I would definitely make them again. My daughter liked them even without syrup. The apple cinnamon flavor really stands out!

    Haven't made these yet, but some advice on making pancakes. Three equally important things -1) consistency of batter - don't over mix it - lumpy is good 2) the surface of your griddle/pan 3) the evenness of the heat. Pancakes are cooked at a relatively high heat. I just checked the Phillips electric frying pan I use and the recommended temp. is 375. To test any pan let a few drops of cold water fall on it - if the water bounces and sputters - the pan is ready. If the water sits and boils - it's not hot enough. If the water evaporates instantly - it's too hot. I always peek under the edges of my pancakes to make sure they're not over cooking. The tops and edges get bubble holes when ready to flip - but checking with the flipper or a spatula is the best way. I use other non-electric pans and even a griddle on the barbeque for large quanties. Most of my recipes call for slightly more liquid than dry indredients. I can see some issues with the consistency of the apple sauce that is used. Add more flour is it's too runny or more milk if it's too thick. Hope this helps.`````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

    I don't know if I did something wrong but I'm pretty sure I followed the recipe step by step. These pancakes were not very good at all!! They were soggy in the middle but almost burnt on the outside. I cooked them over medium low heat and they were blackening before they were cooked on the inside. I won't be making these again.

    We made these for brunch yesterday and everyone liked them, even our picky toddler. My only complaint is that I was kept guessing by the size of them. They turned out larger than typical silver dollar pancakes, which made me wonder if I was getting the actual serving size or more, not to mention we only got 3 servings out of the entire recipe.
