    Such a special way to start the day! This tasty pancake looks and smells as good as it taste. I made as written cutting the recipe in half and using a 6" cast-iron pan and that made plenty for the two of us. This is a true keeper that I will be using to chase away those dreary winter mornings. Thanks for the post.

    This is an awesome recipe and very close to the pannekoken that used to be available in specialty restaurants here before they went out of business. I wanted to introduce my nephew to them, made this, and now he's hooked! I've made it several times since with a few tweaks. I add a dash of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and clove for an out-of-this-world breakfast or comfort food meal. Thank you for posting!

    Now this was a pancake ! ! It was easy to make, fluffy, and very flavorful. This was one of those recipes where after seeing the ending result, you almost didn't want to cut in to it, so pretty. Made this for DS and I, this morning. A delightful treat. Made for Holiday tag.

    Mmm this is the kind of Yorkshire pudding blasphemy my family really goes for, thanks! My husband complains when I make to large a breakfast-he ate a whole lot of this, it's very good.

    Wow, Anna, was this awesome. My picky dh & I loved this treat. It was light, tender fluffy and full of beautiful apples. I made half the recipe for the two of us, it was perfect. Thanks for sharing a quick and easy to make recipe, that we will be enjoying again and again.
