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.
