"I used Bisquick, eggs, and milk for the pancake mix. I added one apple and 4oz. of unsweetened apple sauce, plus the cinnamon to it. I followed the syrup recipe exactly. We loved this recipe. Very apple-y!"

"I have only made the syrup and I love it! I did think it thickened almost too much the first time so this second time I added more cider (just personal preference). It tastes great and helps not to have to buy the real maple syrup so often which certainly helps with grocery costs."

"Yes, I would make it again ~ already have!!

My family loved it. What a great way to add a little extra fruit into their diet. Super easy.
Didn't have my grater handy so I just choped the apple instead. I will also try apple sauce with less liquid to see how that works.
Thanks for sharing ~ GREAT recipe."

"I devided the recipe for the pancakes by 3 and made 4 pancakes. For the syrup, I was out of nutmeg, so I used 1/4 tsp. apple pie spice in place of the 1/8 tsp. nutmeg and 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. This was the best apple pancakes that I ever ate. I loved the syrup, and I do not like pancake syrup."
