Apple Pancake Syrup

When the orchard apples were first available in fall, I purchased a large bag of my favorite apples for baking. I've been using them up in various recipes and this is one of them. We really like this syrup on apple pancakes. Dipping slices of apples in this syrup is really tasty as well.
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup pure apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon.
  2. Whisk in apple juice until mixture is smooth.
  3. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until bubbly and thickened.
  4. Stir in lemon juice and butter.
  5. Serve with pancakes. (really good on apple pancakes)
  6. Yield: 1 cup. 


  1. Yum - that sounds delicious! Now I'm hungry for apple pancakes.

  2. YUMMY, do you know how long it will keep, if it makes it that long ? I might like to make a double batch.

    1. The longest I've had it in the fridge is 2 weeks. It thickens up in the fridge but once I need it I reheat it in the microwave and it's just like freshly made!

  3. This syrup sounds absolutely delicious and I can't wait to make it. I would sure love to know how to make apple pancakes too. Is there a recipe for them or would I just add applesauce to the batter. Thank you.
    I LOVE your website and check it everyday! Shelley

    1. Shelley..use your favorite pancake batter and add a shredded apple.
