These are yummy, especially with the topping. I did not add the onion, and I'm considering leaving out the apples next time time since you couldn't really taste them.

These were delicious but don't be fooled this is like a sweet potato latke not a pancake. It does not resemble the texture of a pancake but more like a latke. The cream on top really added the extra bang and you could also make the cream as a spread for bagels.
