    Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't have rapeseed oil, so I subsituted vegetable oil instead. Also, I did not have applesauce handy so I made some of my own and used the extras I had to make up for not having enough strawberries on hand. Still tasted great!  -  05 Jun 2011


    These were very easy to make and so nice that I had to have two, nice and warm from the oven! I didn't have apples so added in more strawberries and will try a strawberry and rhubarb combination next time. 😊  -  23 Jul 2015


    Delicious! They were tasty and it was nice to have a batter I could enjoy whilst pregnant (as for it not containing raw eggs). This recipe will definitely see a repeat the next time I need to use up some strawberries and apples.  -  05 Jun 2011
