This was fabulous in taste Susie. It reminded me more of french toast than pancake's because of the sweetness. DH put maple syrup over his even though I thought it was fine w/o any type of topping. Added a bit of nutmeg to the sprinkling over top. Made only two servings..Glad I tagged for 123 HitWonders 08~
