"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."

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 ...
