This easy Maple Syrup Recipe is perfect to top your waffles, pancakes, or French toast!
For YEARS I have purchased my syrup at the grocery store. There our mountains of different varieties to chose from but we have never been able to find the right one for us. It wasn’t until recently that I decided to give my own version a try. I was browsing the spices in target searching for Rum extract when I stumbled onto a MAPLE variety. I was intrigued so I bought the little bottle and headed home.
A few weeks went by and the thought slipped from my mind. It was not until I whipped up my Gingerbread Pancakes that I realized we were fresh out of syrup. I reached to the back of the pantry for the extract (pictured above), rolled up my sleeves, and got to work. After a quick online search and saw that many of the maple syrup recipes are relatively similar and knew I could make a version that would be approved by my picky eaters.
I also think that this would be amazing if you used a vanilla extract instead of maple. No need to run to the store for that ingredient if you don’t have it on hand. So what do you think? Willing to give this easy recipe a try next time you make pancakes for breakfast?
