"Apples, raisins, pecans, and just a hint of lemon – what could taste better with a steaming cup of fresh coffee? These light, fruity pancakes taste so good no one will realize how healthy they are. Freeze the extras to reheat in the microwave and you’ll have a hot, delicious breakfast a lot faster than waiting in line at the drive-thru. Or hand them to the kids cold for an on-the-go, in-the-car start when time is short."

"I love pancakes and can't wait to get home tonight and make some for dinner! National Pancake Day is every day for me."
"These pancakes were yummy both hot and later cold!!! I didn't have any cream so I did 1/2 c milk & 1/2 c sour cream. I also, let the batter rest/setup just a little, 5-10 min. before I started frying. I also suggest adding sugar or seasonings to your preference. Makes a very generous amount of hearty pancakes. Wonderfully yummy!!! I'm looking forward to making these again. Thanks!!"
"I used all milk for this recipe, mostly because heavy cream is expensive. The pancakes turned out hearty and delicious. We have a family of 5 and we had 3 pancakes left over, but I use a ladle to scoop the batter and fill the whole bottom of the small skillet, so mine are larger than the recipe says. I will definitely use this recipe again, but next time I will put some sugar and a spice or two in it, to liven it up. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I have been using this site for recipes for years and this is the first time I felt compelled to write a review. Those pancakes were great!!!. What a treat! I made it exactly as the recipe says. I thought of adding a T of sugar but didn't and it was fine with the maple syrup. I want to try using half with whole wheat next time."
"After having this I stood up at the dinner table and applauded the recipe !!!
This one makes me do the happy food dance!!"
"Great recipe, loved the oatmeal, and I made mine with 1 cup flour and 1 cup whole wheat. Also didn't have heavy cream, so used buttermilk instead. Did add some cinnamon after trying the first ones, it intensified the flavor. My husband loved it and couldn't believe that there was no additional fats in it."
"These were super yummy! I used wheat flour and they turned out perfect! Thanks!"
"These are definitely my new favorite for pancakes. I've made LOTS of pancakes and i have to pancake eaters who swear by these as well! I made only 1/2 the recipe and added some dried cranberries and cinnamon. I'll definitely make these again and again!"
"Made this as part of my once-a-week cooking foray. Didn't have enough bowls, so mixed cream and lemon juice together, and in a big bowl dumped all the other ingredients and mixed before adding cream mixture. Cooked in 2 metal baking pans at 425 deg F for 20 mins. Used 2 Royal Gala apples and 3 Granny Smith cut into 16ths. This is great served warm with vanilla ice cream for pudding."
"add 1/4c Craisins...MMMMMMMMMMMMMM"
"Wow! These were great. I made them dairy-free substituting rice milk for the milk and coconut milk beverage for the heavy cream. I'm sure they would have been really decadent with the cream, but these were some hearty pancakes no matter what. Otherwise I followed the recipe. I make ginormous pancakes out of them...sort of German style, I guess....and got 8."
"We LOVE these pancakes, minus the raisins. I opt for the wheat flour to make them healthier. Patted with butter and a drizzle of real maple syrup, these can't be beat!"
"Normally, I cannot make a pancake to save my life. However, I found this recipe and planned to make them for my 2-year-old, but I ended up eating a bunch of them. They're delicious! My son agrees. I cut the recipe down to 1/3, but I will soon try making a lot of them and freezing them. I used all milk instead of cream because that was all I had. I also added some milled flax seed and a little extra oatmeal because the batter seemed thin. In the end though, they were awesome. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I made these not too long ago and my family loved them. My hubby was a bit iffy when I told him the name of the pancakes, but he fell in love after the first bite. My 3 year old likes hers with peanut butter smeared on top. And they made the whole house smell good while cooking."
"I've been meaning to make these for ages and I finally got around to it!!!!!These are lovely pancakes...very automnal! I'm afraid I didn't follow the recipe to the T...I just threw everything together! ;-)...so maybe they weren't as light as they are meant to be but they still tasted brilliant!"
"These are my favorite pancakes from now on. Thanks 3KillerBs (I like your name!)"
"Good pancakes! I used pink lady apples, and doubled the pecans (which was just right for us). I usually don't put syrup on my pancakes, but I did with these. Since there is no sugar in the batter, I felt like they sort of needed it. This recipe served about 6 people."
"We really enjoyed these pancakes for breakfast this morning! I used Chilean Braeburn Apples.The only thing I changed was to omit the raisins because we don't like them. The batter was thin with hard clumps from the fruit and such; so the batter spread rapidly when placed on the skillet. To solve this issue, I used a heart shaped collar and they rose beautifully and were contained. Good Luck on your entry chef!"
