These pancakes freeze very well! Make them small for toddlers to hold or larger for the rest of the family. I like to use flavored (blueberry, strawberry, etc) applesauce without any added sugar. If you use a flavored applesauce, you may omit the vanilla flavoring. The flavors are great so that there is no need for syrup! This recipe is adapted from

I followed the instructions to the letter, but the batter was way too wet for making pancakes. You end up with pancakes that are burned on the outside, and still soggy in the middle. They just won't cook through. I ended up pouring the rest of my batter into a cake tin and baking it! (It made an ok cake.)

I created an account just to write this review. Don't waste your time. I wasted mine and my hungry baby's plus the ingredients. I cooked and cooked and cooked these and they stayed gooey in the middle. I even cut them into bite sized pieces and they still wouldn't cook!
