Reviews for Sweet Apple Pancakes with Cider Syrup
"Absolutely loved the syrup. The pancakes froze and reheated great. Will definitely be making these again!"
"These pancakes are delicious and so quick and easy. The cider syrup really added an apple flavor to the pancakes. I made these for a Mother's Day brunch and everyone loved them. I would make this again and again."
"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."
"I just made the syrup using apple juice and it was fantastic! Not as sweet as the store bought and so full of flavor. I am going to try this receipe with blueberry juice. I did not make the pancakes."
"Hubby and I are diabetics so one change, had a Splenda/cinnamon/nutmeg mix for apple pie so used that for sugar and spices. Also 1 tsp baking powder. Awesome!!"
"Can't wait to make this for a church brunch in Sept. I would LOVE it if TOH had a catagory for large group recipes."

"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."
"It's too bad I can only give this a five star rating. If I could I would give it 10 stars! The pancakes are fantastic and the syrup is delicious too. Everyone in my family loved them, and I will definitely be making them again."

"The Cider syrup was delicious, you could eat it with a spoon. The pancakes with the apple just added to the taste. 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."
