The Twilight Breakfast Special

We get rave reviews for our Apple Pancakes and Cinnamon Apple Syrup, so here is the recipe:

  • 2 cups pancake mix (we use Krusteaze)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup grated apple (we use Granny Smith apples and usually one is plenty)

Beat pancake mix, cinnamon, egg, and milk with a rotary beater until smooth. Stir in the apple. Grease griddle, if necessary. Pour batter by 1/4 cup measuring cupfuls onto hot griddle. Bake until bubbles appear. Turn, bake other side until golden brown. Serve with warm Cinnamon Apple Syrup.

Cinnamon Apple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

In a saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir in apple cider and lemon juice. Cook stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Makes about 2 1/2 cups

Garnish the pancakes with little sour cream thinned out with cream and a pinch of nutmeg.
