“This is a modified crepe, packed with flavor! Except that you just pour into the pan like you would a typical pancake. The cinnamon syrup is to die for! Try adding some chopped *apples or banana slices to the syrup prior to serving for an extra treat! *Note: lightly saute apples till tender prior to adding to syrup. However, these taste great with just plain maple syrup or My Favorite Way: Butter, sprinkled Powdered Sugar and fresh squeezed Lemon juice! YUMMM!”
