  1. Great pancakes that the family loved!
  2. I have made these many times over the years. These are my husbands favorite pancakes. They are so full of flavor that syrup is really not needed. Truly yummy!
  3. Lovely recipe - wonderful light, moist pancakes with a delicate cinnamon-apple flavour. Thanks for posting.
  4. Yummy!!! I made these for breakfast this morning and they are wonderful!!! It was like a dessert for breakfast. They are so moist and flavorful with the apples, cinnamon and sour cream. The only change I made to make 1/2 of the recipe. I read some of the reviews and made sure to lower my heat, after making bacon, to med-low and it worked out great. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag game.
  5. Wow, what a great use for my pink ladies. The apple pancakes were awesome. Light, fluffy and so flavorful, the texture was perfect. I really enjoyed this breakfast treat. Which I served with butter and pure maple syrup. I really loved the addition of the cinnamon, it reminded me of apple cake. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty treat ~Nimz~.


I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
