Apple and Cinnamon pancakes with Cinnamon butter and sryup

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.
