I really don’t like that we go through so much pancake syrup around here! All I can think about it how much high fructose corn syrup we are consuming. I would love to be able to afford real maple syrup but that would require a second mortgage on the house or for one of the boys to get a full-time job.
My friend Stephanie told me she makes her own pancake syrup from a recipe that was her mother in law’s. I was so excited to try it! Not only do I love making things myself but I have this really snazzy syrup container to put it in!
It’s really easy to make and you just store it in the fridge. And it’s perfect on pancakes and waffles!
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water.
Bring to a boil over med heat, stirring occasionally. Let boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let rest for 1 minute.
Stir in 1/2 tsp maple extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
Store in fridge. It will get thicker after it cools.
