Fresh Strawberry Syrup is a great light and refreshing change to traditional maple syrup for pancakes. Pour this over a stack of flapjacks and enjoy a fresh and fruity breakfast. Try it over some cheesecake or make a glass of strawberry milk as well!
My kids ask for pancakes for breakfast AND dinner so often! We love them in our house. We eat them so much, and the kids always want syrup, strawberries and whipped cream.
Well, I made them the other day and we were out of maple syrup. So, what was I going to do? Well, I made this strawberry syrup, and the kids loved it!
Simple to make, and it tastes so good! Fresher and lighter than regular syrup, this will become a new favorite for everyone.
How to make Strawberry Syrup:
Start by dissolving your sugar in the water at a medium heat. Add in your sliced, fresh strawberries and bring to a boil.
Keep the strawberries on a rolling boil for about 10 minutes. Once cooked and the strawberries are nice and softened, lower the heat and simmer for another 10 minutes.
This will allow the sauce to thicken some. You are then ready to serve!
- Strawberries (washed and quartered)
Step One - Heat water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.
Step Two - Add strawberries into your saucepan and bring to a boil and allow to boil for 10 minutes.
Step Three - Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for an additional 10 minutes until strawberries are cooked and mushy and the sauce has thickened.
Step Four - Serve over pancakes, cheesecake, or any other dessert.
Step Five - To serve in milk strain strawberries until you only have the syrup. Add to milk and mix.
Step Six - Place unused syrup into a jar with a lid and keep refrigerated.
I made this specifically to serve on top of pancakes. It is a classic serving option for pancakes and a great replacement for pancake syrup.
It's lighter and has less sugar than syrup. Pour it on top of a big stack of pancakes and then top with some whipped cream.
One of my favorite desserts is cheesecake. I love cheesecake covered in fruit.
Whether it is strawberries, cherries or blueberries it is one of the best desserts out there in my opinion.
So, I poured this homemade strawberry syrup on some leftover cheesecake we had. It hit the spot and was a great addition to the dessert.
I love strawberry milk. I grew up drinking it, and probably drank it more than chocolate milk. Use this Strawberry Syrup to make some Strawberry Milk.
Strain the strawberry chunks from the syrup in order to mix in the milk.
No matter how good it tastes, no one wants chunky milk. Mix well with the milk and enjoy.
