apple cinnamon pancakes

I LOOOOVE pancakes. I think it is one of the first things I learned how to make as a young girl. I like to experiment with new recipes, try new fillings or syrups etc etc. So when I saw a new recipe on this months Good Food magazine I had to try it. So I ended up removing a few things and adding one or two. Hope you guys enjoy it.
Apple and Cinnamon pancakes with Cinnamon butter and Syrup

Melt a little butter in a pan or pour a little oil. When hot, add 1-3 small ladles of batter to the pan making 1-3 small pancakes (this will depend on the size of your pan)

Cook for 2-3 minutes until it bubbles appear and the underneath are set and golden. Flip and cook for a few more minutes

Transfer to a plate and cover. You can place in a warm oven to keep them warm
