2 cups complete buttermilk pancake mix
1-1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
In a small bowl, combine the pancake mix, water, syrup, butter and cinnamon. Pour batter into a plastic squirt bottle. Squeeze batter into desired letters and shapes onto a greased hot griddle. When underside is browned, turn pancakes and cook until second side is golden brown.
Meanwhile in a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, water and butter. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Serve with flapjacks.
