Spicy Apple Pancakes with Cider Sauce

My mom made these for breakfast, when my friends Stacie and Monica came over for after Christmas, Christmas.  We have been doing this gift exchange for a few years now and it is a lot of fun.

My mom last made these when she was a teenager and even though they were a big hit, she seemed to gave forgotten about them until this year, because this is the first I have ever heard of them.  They are mighty good and I hope that you try them out and that they fuel some fun, like they did for me. For after I ate them, I taught my friends how to do the dance I am learning in my hip- hop class.  I should have filmed this, it was too funny!  Both friends did well... because they were born from a boombox (Step Up 3 quote).  It means they were born dancers...
