  5. Mix the cornstarch into the 1 cup of water until dissolved and immediately add the water mix, stir until the sugar is dissolved.

  7. While the apples are cooking, make the pancakes.
  8. Serve.
  9. Note: If you would like a thinner syrup, simply add a little more water.

  12. Mix the egg, butter, and buttermilk together in a small bowl.
  13. Make a depression in the dry ingredients and add the liquid mixture.
