Apple cider syrup is a wonderfully rich and delicious syrup with all the flavors of fall. It pairs wonderfully with many common breakfast options.

Pancakes and waffles are really just made for syrup and there are so many different kinds of syrup you can do. We love my mother-in-laws buttermilk syrup and I’m also partial to Cranberry Applesauce.

With so many varieties it is fun to mix things up but I do love how much syrup this makes so we always have some left over without a need to double the recipe. Then I can enjoy it again later that week which always makes me happy. 


If you don’t have Bisquik mix, you can substitute with self rising flour or 3 Tablespoons flour and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder.

  1. In a medium sized pot, mix all the ingredients together and boil for 2 minutes.

  1. So is the bisquick just to thicken it? Could you use another type of thickener?
    I wanna try on ice-cream n pancakes.
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. The biscuit mix allows it to thicken and adds a bit of fluffiness to it. You can substitute flour for the bisquik but I would add a pinch of salt and baking powder.
