Great topper for pancakes, waffles or hot cereal, but equally good as a side dish on its own.

I used a combination of granny smith and gala apples. The dish is easy to prepare and makes a wonderful addition to pancakes or waffles. I used the raisins as suggested and think they would be equally good with dried cranberries. I may try these again over frozen vanilla yogurt.

I used two smallish macintosh apples, left the peel on for color, and just barely cooked them. I liked the maple and apple together. We served this with Chef Kate's Ginger Bread Pancakes #138728 which was a fabulous combination. Great tasting, easy recipe, thanks!

I made this as a warm topping to my morning cup of cottage cheese. The dish was easy to prepare and made a lovely autumnal addition as the apples and maple syrup paired quite nicely. I used light butter which I think worked fine in this recipe. Thanks Laurie.
