This apple cinnamon pancake sauce is super easy and quick, and it adds something new to pancakes. Even pancakes, since we have them quite often, can get a little boring now and then. This sauce took practically no extra time since I could make it while the pancakes were cooking. Anyway, my little sister demonstrated her approval by eating four big pancakes absolutely covered in this sauce!
Makes enough to generously coat about ten five inch pancakes.
- 1 medium sized apple, chopped into little quarter inch diameter cubes
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup brown sugar or honey
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon cold water
- ½ teaspoon cloves
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Chop your apple up and place the pieces in a small saucepan. Add the water. If you are using sugar, put the sugar in now. If you are using honey, do not put it in yet.
- Place the saucepan on the burner and heat burner to medium high. Stir every minute or so and allow the ingredients to come to a slow boil.
- Stir together the cornstarch and cold water until the cornstarch has completely dissolved into the water. When the ingredients in the saucepan have come to a boil, pour in the cornstarch/water mixture. Immediately stir, continuing to stir for about ten seconds. Then stop stirring.
- Allow the ingredients to return to a boil. As soon as it boils again, the mixture will begin to thicken. Stir as it thickens. Allow to thicken for about ten seconds.
- Remove from heat and turn the burner off.
- At this time, add the cinnamon and cloves. If you are adding honey, also add that at this time.
- Stir until the honey (if using) is completely melted, and the cinnamon and cloves are fully incorporated.
Anyway, that’s all for this recipe (you can eat it now)!
