Delicious! I have omitted the sugar for the apple filling (b/c the MacIntosh apples are quite sweet already), and using only about 1Tbsp butter to sautee apples, and then brush about 1/2 tsp on pan for each pancake made. I serve them with thick slices of bacon, and maple syrup... MmmMmmm, thanks for sharing!

These pancakes were absolutly delicious! I served them with warmed real maple syrup and some thick slab cut bacon. We easily could have licked our plates clean. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
