applesauce pancakes with apple cider syrup

these are delicious and addictive. such a yummy breakfast for a cold morning.


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup melted butter

combine all ingredients and mix well. drop in dollops on hot skillet. flip and top with butter while warm.

for syrup::
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups apple cider
1 cup brown sugar
2 cinnamon sticks

in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. when the butter stops foaming, add the apple cider, brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks. bring to a boil, stirring. continue cooking over medium heat, stirring frequently, until reduced by half to about 1 to 1 1/4 cups. this will take about 15 minutes. the syrup will thicken as it cools. Remove cinnamon sticks and serve with pancakes.

Those sound SO good! My daughter has always been teeny tiny, and she's a super picky eater, but one thing I can ALWAYS get her to eat is pancakes, so I love finding new varieties of pancakes to try. I actually have all the ingredients for these. Thanks!
