"These pancakes are a healthy alternative to traditional recipes. Serve them warm with a homemade brown sugar syrup. For the apples, be sure to use a firm baking variety such as Cortland or Granny Smith."

whole wheat flour
apple - peeled, cored and diced
dark brown sugar
With some modifications, this recipe could be a good one. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder (1/4 cup of a rising agent is way too much), the 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/4 cup honey (pancakes need sweetener in my opinion!), 2 eggs, and 1/4 cup canola oil. This at least will give you a good basic pancake recipe. From here, add or omit the cinnamon, apples, etc. Didn't do the glaze, but a brown sugar glaze sounds intriguing.
I also tried the recipe and it is way off. I was determined to make it work, so i tried it with 1/2 the baking powder, 1/2 the liquid, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 apple diced very small. I didnt make the sauce as i thought it was way too fattening, i just put light syrup on top.
They were thick, and very hearty pancakes, very filling, but good after the modifications.
I'm glad I didn't read any reviews first or I might have been scared away. GLAD I WASN'T! I halved everything in the recipe to feed fewer ~ I thought they turned out great but I had to add a little more milk to thin them out since I like thinner pancakes. I'm not sure why so many people feel they need to modify this recipe... I think you should take them at face value. With whole wheat flour and no sugar, this recipe will only appeal to a few people. Our family was one. Everyone devoured them! I didn't make the brown sugar glaze but if I did I sure wouldn't want sugar in the cakes PLUS this glaze on top.
This recipe did not work at all. There is far, far too much baking powder, too much liquid, and the apple chunks are too large. It took quite a bit of doctoring to make it edible.
this was a hard lesson for me in reading the reviews of others before making a recipe. you definitely don't need that much baking powder.
I made this exactly the way the recipe called it, except I used sea salt instead of salt. Pretty good except I agree, way too much baking powder, the batter was very "fluffy" but it helped to encompass the apple chunks. Pancakes were a little dry but the brown sugar glaze was SO good and helped. I used light brown sugar because I didn't have any dark on hand.
These are really good, not sure why there are all these negative reviews! The consistency was good, not too sloppy at all. The only change I made based on the reviews was to reduce the baking powder to 2 1/2 tsp. I didn't miss a sweetener and served them with regular syrup. Yum! Thanks for the recipe.
This looked like a lovely recipe, but there was WAY too much baking powder. I would say use half the required amount at most. Otherwise, though, they were great, and with a modification or two I would probably make these again.
