Cinnamon Apple Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

If you like apple cider, you will like this pancake and syrup recipe.  The cinnamon and the apple cider flavor really come through and warm you up on a cool fall morning.

1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup apple cider or juice
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cups complete pancake mix (the kind that you only add water to, I used Hungry Jack)
1-1/2 cups apple juice or cider
1 apple, finely diced
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1.Start by preparing the syrup. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg.
2.Add the cider in and stir until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes.
3.Reduce heat to a simmer and cook while stirring for 2 minutes longer. Stir in butter and lemon juice until butter is melted.
4.In a medium bowl, whisk together the pancake mix and cinnamon. Add juice and whisk just until moistened.
5.Fold finely diced apple into the batter.
6.Pour batter onto a greased hot griddle using a 1/4 cup measuring cup; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until second side is golden brown.
7.Serve the pancakes with cider syrup. (I sprinkled some granola on mine along with a spoonful of whipped cream to make it look pretty) Makes 12 pancakes and 1-1/4 cups syrup.
