Or really go all out while your pancake batter rests.
Peel and shred 1 large apple into a small soup pot with 1/2tsp cinnamon.
add 1/2c water & 1-2 shots of Bourbon & bring to a boil, reduce and simmer 15 min add syrup and cook 10 more min. The alcohol will cook-off but the flavor remains.
I use 1/2c Maple 1/2 c Any Pancake Syrup
Want it thicker? Stir 1 tsp cornstarch to 1Tbl cold water. Whisk into the simmering syrup.
