    This is great, my daughter who is 4 wanted THIRDS. Do yourself a favor and triple this recipe, its so good!!! A keeper in our house for sure! I used a tad less than 1/2 c of brown sugar and it was because mine was getting hard. I think it is PERFECT that way. Not too sweet! Oh and if you are a bread pudding lover, you will love this too! Not so much a "pancake" taste but more of a custard type taste. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

    I just put this on my favorites list. It's so easy to put together and the result is picture perfect with great flavor. Warning: It does lose its puff so make sure they're at the table when you serve it. (My guys are rarely on time at the table!)<br/><br/>Today I tried this with blueberries and some white chocolate chips because my DH likes them. I used less butter in the topping and it was equally as good as the apple. I am going to keep trying more combos. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Made just as directed and it was wonderful. Our 8-year old thought it was a tad sweet so I may cut down on the brown sugar next time by 1/8 c. or so. We had four eating this and I would definitely double for 4-hungry eaters or more as it disappears fast! Thank you Marie!

    I made this for dessert. My oldest DD and I really enjoyed it. My mom gave us some apples from her apple trees. They are on the small side so I used four. I had the leftovers for breakfast the next day. We will be making this again.

    This is a must try recipe. It is one of those recipes you try and think "Hmmm, next time I'll try (fill in the blank)"...not because it isn't good as is (Because it's yummy) but because you can tweak this basic into many forms. For me, I thought, I bet you could double or triple this recipe (for a crowd) and make it in a 13x9 pan and have a breakfast casserole kind of thing...maybe throw in some breakfast sausage (compliments the apple well)...etc. Or you could experiment with different fruits, etc. For me my next incarnation I'm going to keep everything the same but decrease it to one egg, just to see if it comes out more "pancake like"...or try a 1/2 cup of pancake mix...anyway, it is sure to become a staple recipe.


I live in upstate New York. I am retired and now have time to enjoy my children, my grandchildren and great grandchildren.
