Beat baking mix, cinnamon, egg and milk with rotary beater until smooth. Stir in apple. Grease griddle if necessary. Pour batter by 1/4-cup measuring cupfuls onto hot (medium-high) griddle. Bake until bubbles appear. Turn; bake other side until golden brown. Serve with warm cider sauce (recipe below); if you wish, top with dairy sour cream.
