Apple Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup


Jake Spurlock’s (married to Melissa Hanks Bain) grandpa always used to make these pancakes and syrup.  Now Jake and Melissa make it when guests stay at their home.  The syrup is definitely the  best part!



  • 2 c. Bisquick
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/3 c. milk
  • 3/4 c. grated apple


  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 c. apple cider or juice
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice


For the pancakes, mix all ingredients together and cook pancakes as normal.  For the syrup, mix together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg in saucepan.  Pour in juice (apple & lemon). Cook & stir constantly until thickened & boils.  Boil & stir one minute.  Remove from heat & stir in butter.  Serve warm over pancakes.
