As promised from my post last week, I wanted to share with you this AMAZING recipe I found at Real Mom Kitchen. I love her blog, by the way. Every week when I plan meals I check out her blog for ideas and usually grab a recipe or two for the week. And last week I saw her Pumpkin Patch Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup! I am totally in a pumpkin mood! I may have had pumpkin muffins for breakfast and these pumpkin pancakes for lunch today...So good!
But really these pancakes and syrup are delicious! Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
4 cups apple juice or apple cider ( I used apple juice)
Mix up your favorite pancake mix according to package directions. For every cup of dry mix used, mix in the following:
¼ cup canned pumpkin
½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
(We used 2 cups of pancake mix, so 1/2 cup of pumpkin and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice)
To make the syrup - In a sauce pan mix together, sugar, cornstarch, and pumpkin spice. Stir in apple juice or apple cider. Bring to a boil, remembering to stir occasionally. Boil until desired thickness and remove from heat.
We probably let it boil for about 5 minutes. It also makes a ton of syrup. We made pancakes two different days (yeah they're that good) and had plenty of syrup for both.
To make the pancakes - Prepare pancake mix according to package directions. Then for every cup of mix used, add ¼ cup canned pumpkin and ¼ tsp pumpkin spice.
Cook pancakes and serve with the apple cider syrup.
