For work this morning, we had a farewell party for one of my colleagues (who incidentally will be sorely missed). I brought the pancake batter for the breakfast feast, and another coworker brought some excellent homemade syrup. They made a fantastic combination in my opinion, so I thought I'd share the recipes here.


2 eggs
2 c sour milk or buttermilk
1/4 c oil (or unsweetened applesauce)
2 c flour
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
2 Tbs ground wheat (optional)
1 grated Granny Smith apple (or some other variety of firm, tart apple)
chopped nuts (optional)
fresh blueberries, if available (optional)

Mix the wet ingredients. Add in the dry ingredients. Add the grated apple and chopped nuts. Whisk until fairly well mixed. Cook on a preheated, slightly greased griddle until golden brown. Makes between 20-30 pancakes, depending on the size and whatnot. (We fed 9 people with that batch, but they were also eating eggs and sausage and fruit.)

The recipe for the creamy syrup comes from here but I will copy it below for the convenience factor - just remember I can't take any credit for its deliciousness!

Magleby's Creamy Syrup
1 stick butter
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup buttermilk
1 T. vanilla
1 T. corn syrup
½ tsp. baking soda

Bring first five ingredients to a boil.
Add in baking soda.
Boil for 10 seconds then remove from heat immediately to avoid boil over.
Serve over French toast, pancakes, crepes or any other yummy breakfast item.
