Ingredients

For the Pancakes

  • 2 cups pancake or biscuit mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup apples, grated
  • Sour cream (optional garnish)
  • Creme fraiche (optional garnish)
  • Greek yogurt (optional garnish)

For the Cider Sauce

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter or margarine

Directions

For the Pancakes

To make the pancakes, combine the biscuit mix, cinnamon, egg, and milk, then stir in the apples last. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto a hot griddle to ensure evenly sized pancakes. Cook until lightly brown on both sides. Keep the pancakes warm in the oven while you make the sauce.

For the Cider Sauce

To prepare the sauce, combine the cornstarch and spices in a small sauce pan. Add the cider and lemon juice and cook over low heat, stirring often, until the mixture gently boils and thickens. (If the sauce doesn't thicken, add a little more cornstarch.) Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter. Immediately serve it over your finished pancakes and garnish with a dollop of sour cream, créme fraîche, or Greek yogurt, if desired.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
