DIY Pancake Syrup

This recipe is definitely not as healthy for you as real maple syrup, but is much cheaper. I think is tastes much more like real maple syrup than the maple flavored pancake syrup from the store. I think that this could even make a unique homemade food gift for a breakfast lover.

Simple Pancake Syrup

3 cups granulated sugar
1½ cups water
1 tsp maple extract of maple flavoring

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil stirring frequently. Pour over pancakes, and enjoy immediately, or cool and store for later use.

Some people prefer a little vanilla extract, butter flavoring, and/or molasses added to the recipe to make a more complex flavor of syrup. If you don't like maple flavor in the first place, you can use another flavor instead: vanilla, almond, and raspberry all work well.

Someday I am going to try this tip about saving water from boiling potatoes to make the syrup thicker and richer. I hate throwing anything remotely useful away too, I think I inherited that from my dad.
