Apple Cider Pancakes

Fall is upon us my friends. My heart is overjoyed at the prospect of cold noses and chilly fingers. As we dive into the beauty of Autumn, the only music I want to listen to (before breaking out the Christmas tunes) is the soundtrack from Little Women. If you have never watched the movie our heard the music, your life is greatly lacking and you should remedy that today! Winona Ryder plays her part beautifully, and who can resist Christian Bale in the early years!!!! Owwwowww!! Seriously. Go watch it. And Spotify has the whole soundtrack. You’ll thank me!

So, this morning I woke up with a fervor for fall. It is my favorite time of year. October is my favorite month. It is a beautiful day and I am on the hunt for beautiful food! These pancakes are to die for! I also made a cider & maple syrup reduction that was to die for! So here ya go!

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup apple cider
1 tbsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Next, stir in the egg, melted butter, and apple cider. You can adjust the apple cider to preferred thickness. Then, mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Turn the heat on the stove top to medium low. Melt a tsp of butter in the frying pan. Once butter begins to sizzle, pour 1/4 cup pancake mix onto the skillet for each pancake. Turn over once bubbles begin to show in the center, and cook until golden brown on the other side. Serve immediately with warm maple syrup. The recipe makes 10-12 pancakes. Serve with some hot coffee or apple cider!
