OH NO!!! It happened. The kids want breakfast and not just cereal. They want homemade pancakes with syrup. And you just ran out of Maple Syrup. Facepalm. Standing in your PJs you are not ready to head out to the store and spend a whopping $13 on a pint of maple syrup.

Your other option is to buy a big plastic jug of “maple-flavored syrup” at your corner store. A jug with a nutrition label a mile long, containing words like – CORN SYRUP, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, WATER, CELLULOSE GUM, CARAMEL COLOR.

You think – no way. Let me search the master recipe finder – Google, for a better recipe. And here you are my friend. Congratulations! Because you just found a fantastic syrup recipe you can make with a few simple ingredients found in your pantry (brown sugar and granulated sugar).

Clearly, any of the three options contain sugar. But sugar is sugar, you say. Not true, pure maple syrup is better for you. And this recipe is a ton better than syrup made from ingredients you can’t pronounce. As for the store-bought jug of “syrup” – do yourself and your family a favor and throw that junk out and give this recipe for Homemade Pancake Syrup a try.

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

How to Make Homemade Pancake Syrup

Mixing ingredients for pancake syrup

Combine Sugars, Water, and Vanilla Extract– In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, place the brown sugar and water. Bring this mixture to a boil, while stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.

Simmer on Low to Medium Heat – Reduce the heat and simmer your mixture for roughly 4 minutes or until thickened. 

Check with a Spoon – Dip a metal spoon into the mixture and watch it drip from the spoon. You are looking for a low drip.

Allow to Cool – Once you reach the thickness you desire. Remove from heat and allow to cool to almost room temperature.

How to Store Your Pancake Syrup

You can store your pancake syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 month in an airtight container. I prefer to use swing top bottles. It does have the potential to last longer. Check out this resource for more info on storing homemade syrup.
