Homemade Pancake Syrup
This Homemade Pancake Syrup is a rich and thick and the perfect alternate to store bought syrup. It is easy to make and goes great with homemade pancakes.
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ¼ teaspoon maple extract or vanilla extract
Place brown sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium/high heat.
Lower heat to medium/low and allow to boil for 4 minutes while whisking.
Next add in butter and stir until butter is melted. Remove from heat and mix in maple extract.
Allow syrup to set for 5 minutes to thicken slightly before serving.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight jar or container.
Cooking Tip: It is essential not to overheat and burn the sugar. Even a small amount of overcooking the sugar will ruin the taste of the syrup.
Serving tip: It is best served a little warm. If it cools all the way, it will become very hard to pour out.
