We use a lot of pancake syrup. A. LOT. And because I need to cut corners, I recently went in search for a recipe or some sort of alternative.
As much as I would love to, I just can’t afford to feed my children real maple syrup all the time…I would have to get my own tree…
Anyway, the answer is in the spice isle close to the vanilla somewhere. I got this bottle of Mapleine for about $4.25. For cost of 2 generic bottles of pancake syrup you can flavor a lot of pancake syrup…A. LOT.
The recipe is right on the bottle…
And just like my Chocolate Syrup recipe (coming soon) the syrup is Simple…What I mean is you make a Simple Syrup.
A Simple Syrup is 1 part water and 2 parts sugar. The sugar is completely dissolved into the water by heating; I gently boil while stirring constantly.
Simple syrups are great for making cold drinks, such as Iced Tea, sweet drinks…Sweet Tea. But they have other great uses as well.
Back to the syrup at hand, all you do is flavor the simple syrup with Mapleine and voila! Pancake syrup!
WHAT and HOW?
1 Cup Water
2 Cups Sugar
½ teaspoon Mapleine
Pour all into saucepan, gently heat to a boil and stir until all sugar has dissolved. Cool and pour into squirt bottle. (Old honey bears work great)
With heart, home and motherhood
