My husband has fond memories of this recipe. Every Sunday morning, his dad would get up early to make the family pancakes and syrup. They didn't have much money, but the kids never knew that. What they do remember is that their dad always had time to make their Sundays extra special. —Lorrie McCurdy, Farmington, New Mexico

"Great simple recipe! I cut the ingredients in half because I didn't need a lot, I didn't have maple flavoring, so I added a sprinkle of cinnamon, it turned out amazing!"

"We used to make syrup like this when I was a kid, except we rarely had brown sugar, so we used just white sugar. Going to try using less water like krysfielder, becauseI'm looking for a thicker syrup. Exactly the idea I had in mind anyway, just needed a second opinion. :-)"

"Delicious syrup! Way cheaper than store bought too. I did lower the amount of water to 1/2 cup to make it thicker. I am going to try different flavor extracts to get different flavor syrups next."

"My mom made a recipe like this for years. She used sugar, water and Mapleine. I gave it four stars because I prefer real maple syrup. We had friends that used to tap maple trees for the syrup.

Bonjour Bahchicherif! 1 cup packed brown sugar = 220 grams, 1 cup sugar white granulated sugar water = 201 grams, and 1 cup water = 237 grams. Or simply use equal volumes of brown sugar, sugar and water. 1 teaspoon maple flavoring (or extract) = 5 grams. Other recipes use as much as 1 tablespoon (15 grams or milliliters) of the maple flavoring.
Note: In the US, cups are standard units of measure in the home, and grams or milliliters are used in laboratory."
