This is an adaptation of a recipe from Carla Hall. My friend Brennan called me and said, “You have to make these pancakes with apples I just saw on t.v!” She was right. The whole family loved these.
- 1 1/2 C. apple juice
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 T. dark corn syrup
- 1 C. Bisquick
- 1 egg
- 1/2 C. milk
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 2 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into thin rings
- butter for frying
To make the apple syrup bring the apple juice, corn syrup, and cinnamon stick to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer until reduced by half, about thirty minutes. It won’t be as thick as your Mrs. Butterworth’s, but the tangy apple flavor really delivers.
Make the batter by mixing the Bisquick, egg, milk, and cinnamon. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Add a pat of butter to the pan.
Use a skewer to dip an apple ring into the batter and place it in the hot butter. Repeat. Cook as you would a regular pancake- about two minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with the hot apple syrup.
