Apple syrup is a quick homemade syrup made with apple juice, Bisquik mix, and cinnamon that is delicious over pancakes.
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.
This apple syrup goes great with any kind of pancakes but it is particularly wonderful in the fall. My particular favorites are whole wheat yogurt pancakes, pumpkin pancakes, or sourdough pancakes. Of course, since apple juice is available year round you can enjoy this whenever you want.
Right after I got married I lived with my in-laws for the summer while my husband was training with the Army. That summer our church’s ladies group (called the Relief Society) got together and submitted recipes and had a recipe book printed. There have been several recipes out of that book that we make on a regular basis and this is one of those. It’s a fun memory of my time there.
