  1. Place pancake mix into a medium bowl, and stir in apple cider. Apple cider may be adjusted to achieve the desired thickness. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in walnuts if using.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and spray with cooking spray. Use about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook 3 to 4 pancakes at a time. Turn over when bubbles appear in the center, and cook until golden on the other side. Serve immediately with pats of butter and maple syrup.

I made these this morning, adding one shredded granny smith apple. These browned really quickly for me. I served them with the Apple Cider Syrup I made last night. I liked them a lot but the kids were lukewarm about them.


Good taste but I think I messed up. The recipe says to use "2 cups complete pancake mix". On the back of the pancake box, it says mix 2 eggs, 2 c. dry pancake mix and milk. Although I knew to use the apple cider in place of the milk, I wasn't sure about the eggs. add? Not add? I choose not to so the pancakes turned out a little doughy but I'll try this again, with eggs, to see if they're fluffier. The flavor was still good. Also, I reduced the nutmeg and cinnamon by half and increased the vanilla to 1 tsp. This does remind me of fall and we served with hot apple cider. Hopefully next time, they'll turn out right.


I've tried these twice and I love them as do my friends. I followed the recipe exactly and it always leaves me wanting more. One twist I've added is to slice up and cook an apple on the stove top along with a little sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The cooked apples served on top of the pancakes go great with the traditional butter and syrup!
