I think I'll add a little vanilla and a pinch of sugar the next time i make it, it was just a tad salty but i think that's because i made them on the griddle with the smart balance. I think the smart balance added way too much salt to them. I was really surprised that the apple ring thing worked! I did not think the apples would get soft or cook all the way through. I do like the way this mix rises, we have had other GF mixes that didn't rise at all! There was no gritty taste or GF aftertaste.
I also tried another Pinterest life hack!.. I tried the pancake mix in an empty ketchup bottle and there was absolutely NO mess! I really like that!
