Sparkling Apple Cider Pancakes …

My house has been a sick house the last couple weeks. We are all finally on the mend (thank goodness) but it has definitely not been fun.

Two weekends ago, my daughter came down with a bad cough and a 103.5 fever. My husband, who got his spleen removed earlier this year, was told that when he gets sick, he might get it worse than he typically would have had he still had a spleen. He was also told that if he came down with any fever over 100.4 he would have to call the ER to make sure he didn’t need to come in. Being the paranoid person that I am, I sent him away for the weekend with my little boy so that hopefully my little girl’s sickness would ride itself out and I could get my house sanitized for their return. Well, New Years Eve came and my daughter came down with pink eye, so my husband, who had just drove into town went to his aunts for 24 hours while my daughter started her antibiotics.

Long story short, our New Years eve plans were canceled. Needless to say, I had some bottles of Sparkling Cider that we were going to pop open New Years Eve night to celebrate that never ended up getting used…. so once again, I put it in a recipe :)

    Looks delishous! I wish I had this for breakfast right now. I will have to give these a try! Thanks for the recipe!

    I can’t wait to try these-they sound amazing! Do you think they would work with all purpose gluten free flour and plain apple cider?

  3. My sister’s wedding was in late December, and for the event, my grandpa bought 36 bottles of sparkling cider from Costco (9 4-packs) for the occasion. There were a few leftover, AND because he’s nice like that, he bought an extra 4 pack for my parents, another for my sister and her new husband, and another for me and my husband. That’s a LOT of cider. I will definitely be trying this, and will pass on the recipe too. :)

  4. Goodness–I’m glad to hear that the household is at least on the track back to recovery! My entire extended family visited right after my parents came back sick from vacation…I had to vacate my room and sleep in theirs, but they made me sleep in their (not-generous) closet so I could keep the germs out. Wonderful parents I have. These pancakes might be a good reward for my suffering though!
