  1. These were very good, but I don't think they came out like they were supposed to. The apples stayed at the bottom of the tins and didn't rise to the top so when I was removing them, a lot of the apple filling was still in the muffin pan and not in the muffin. I also had to cook them a lot longer than 10 minutes. Probably closer to 20 - 25 minutes. These were very good though and definitely a treat for breakfast. I will add another apple to the recipe next time. I will also pour a little batter into the muffin tin before adding the apples to insure that they won't be on the bottom and then pour a little more batter on top. They were very pretty sprinkled with the powdered sugar! Thanks for posting this great idea!
  2. These were something different and very good! I think I may have added a full cup of milk, rather than the 3/4 c called for, but they were still fabulous! Mine came out with a custard-like texture, and had plenty of apples in them. (I used two large apples).The butter should be melted, I believe, before adding to the blender. You could also substitute oil, as I chose to do. I really enjoyed the change of pace. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Yummy! These were simple and very good. I cooked mine for about 18 minutes before they were set and they probably could have gone a couple more minutes. Thanks Cadillacgirl for a nice new keeper. Made for Fall PAC 2009.
  4. These are really yummy and quite easy to make. I ended up baking them for 30 minutes, and they slid right out of the muffin tins. This is definitely a keeper!
  5. Super! Just like the big German Apple Pancake, but ready so much faster! Done in about 12 minutes, and we all enjoyed watching them puff up in the oven. 2 adults & a toddler ate the whole pan for brunch. Yummy treat.


  1. DD absolutely loved it, I found it leaned a bit on the eggy side, but still delicious (I used syrup instead of powdered sugar). Quick and easy - my kind of breakfast. Thanks Cadillacgirl! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.


<p>Picture taken just for Zaar - mmmm milkshake...</p> <p>I'm a brand new single mommy to my tiny perfect human, so thank you to everyone who takes the time to make and review my recipes - I try to send a zmail to each of you, but baby girl has a different idea.</p> <p>I'm a good ol' prairie girl from Canada with one side of the family being Ukrainian/Slovakian and the other side is German/Russian. In other words, when we cook we take carbs, cover them in more carbs, fry'em and serve it smothered in onions and cream.&nbsp;<br />No pro chefs in my family, just grandmas and aunts and cousins and a mom that had me pinching perogies and stuffing strudel before I could form a complete sentence. <br />The most dreaded / laughed at phrase I say is, So last night, I invented this thing for supper... - I would probably publish more recipes if I actually remembered everything I put in or had an idea of how much I added!!</p>
