I thought these pancakes were simple to make. They weren't the best pancakes I have ever had, but they were good. The cider syrup was very good! It was something different from the traditional pancake or maple syrup.

I followed the recipe exactly, using apple juice in the syrup. I thought the pancakes came out a little gummy, and the syrup had a heavy nutmeg taste. We just didn't care for these pancakes

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!

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.
