Apple Pancakes at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast
The National Pancake Day is celebrated throughout the United States each year on September 26. And the Apple Pancakes at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast have become a guest favorite. Thanks to Ryan’s Hood River Juice Company for this Apple Cider Syrup recipe. Here in the Hood River Valley, known for its abundant apples and pears, I’ve been using a wonderful sourdough starter for the pancakes and mixing in one teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 cup grated fresh apple. Cook pancakes up on a hot griddle.
Ryan’s Cider Syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 teas pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup Ryan’s Apple Cider
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
To make syrup: Combine sugar, cornstarch and pumpkin pie spice in medium saucepan; stir in apple cider and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter or margarine. Served warm over the apple pancakes with a side of Chicken Apple Sausage, fresh fruit and yogurt, this hearty breakfast warmed and satisfied our guests on this clear, crisp morning in the Upper Hood River Valley.
