I didn't have flaxseed so I left it out. My kids ate these really fast, and between mouthfuls told me how good they were. I have to agree, they are delicious! I dabbed them with butter then maple syrup. Many repeats here!

I made this for breakfast this morning and it was such a nice change. I used macintosh apples and it was delicious. I poured fresh strawberries in syrup over the top and a dollop of whipped cream and had dessert for breakfast. Doesn't get much better than this!

Great way to use up some apples. I made it as directed in my small round cast -iron pan. It wasn't very sweet on it's own, but I really enjoyed it with pancake syrup. I also can't figure out why it's called "puff"...mine didn't puff it supposed to? Mine looked alot like Dissie's photo. Made for the Alphabet recipe tag game.

This recipe is very quick and easy to make. My hubby said it tastes like an apple pastry. I had it with pancake syrup. Yummy, will make again! Thanks Crocus!
