The perfect fall breakfast. These delicious applesauce pancakes are topped with a fabulous apple cider syrup. Make the syrup the day before to make it a quick and easy gourmet breakfast.


  • ***Apple Cider Syrup***
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ***Applesauce Pancakes***
  • 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


Apple Cider Syrup: In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. When 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.

Applesauce Pancakes: In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, milk, applesauce, and butter; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Keep warm while making the remaining pancakes.
Serves 6 to 8.

Simply wonderful!, Member Laughey1

I made these pancakes just like the recipe called for, and they turned out great! I used cinnamon applesauce - mmm! They made about 8 large pancakes. I didn't make the syrup, but topped mine with a little of the cinnamon applesauce. I will certainly make these again!
