Wonderful topping over anything. Last night, I prepared a box (white)cake mix, poured the prepared gooey syrup in the middle and baked according to the box directions. I did have to bake a few minutes longer, but it turned out like an apple cinnamon coffee cake. Very Yummy! I've also poured it over cheesecake. What an easy way to spruce up box mixes if you're in a hurry. I used granny smith apples and walnuts, as that was what I had on hand. Thanks.

I think I was more fond of the wonderful aroma created by making this topping than I was by eating it. Served it at a family function and even the kids thought it was too sweet.

Oh, so yummy! I served this over french toast for breakfast this morning. I used chopped walnuts in place of pecans and only used one apple. For some reason the apples I bought a few days ago smell like onions, and I didn't want to ruin this so I cut it down to one. I only had to simmer this about 4 minutes and it was done. Also, I didn't toast my walnuts, just pulled them out of the freezer and dumped a handfull in the skillet. I also added about a 1/4 cup of heavy cream to thin it out a bit since it was pretty thick. This is very similar to a crepe filling I've used from this site. Would also go great over vanilla ice cream or cinnamon rolls. Thanks Ian.

I cut this recipe by half. I actually used Granny Smith apples (for a little tartness) and I added a half teaspoon of nutmeg. I served this over Extra Yummy Fluffy Pancakes, which are also on this site. The kids and I thought it was great, though I thought it was quite a bit sweet. I don't know what purpose the corn syrup adds to this recipe, other than a thickening agent. Next time, I might cut it out entirely and see if I don't get the same result, then update my review.

Yum! We had this on the Whole Wheat Pancakes from this site, but it would be perfect on ice cream and many other things, too. Excellent recipe!

I LOVED this! I left out the pecans but it still tasted delicious. I put it on top of "Good Old Fashioned Pancakes". Yum.

Very good. I made this one morning and served it over some pancakes and my whole family flipped. I was looking for something like this to mimmick a brunch that I once had at McKiney and Doyle's.
