Apple Crumble Pancakes

"This is a recipe I worked on after having the Washington Apple Crisp pancakes from IHOP. I use a 1/2 cup ladle to pour out the batter and get five pancakes. You can freeze the leftover streusel topping."

I joined Recipezaar to learn new recipes that are home cooked. I grew up having ready-meals like Encor and Stouffers and needed recipes that don't simply require opening a box and plopping in the oven! I enjoy cooking when I have the time to try new dishes. I make every recipe as written if I'm reviewing it to give a true review. If I make alterations that aren't in the directions, I don't feel it's a true reflection of the recipe; it's another recipe to me. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" width=75%> (Zaar World Tour 4) <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> (Australia/New Zealand Swap #15)
