My husband has fond memories of this pancake syrup recipe. Every Sunday morning, his dad would get up early to make the family pancakes and homemade 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
Although pure maple syrup has a good amount of natural sugar, it contains several antioxidants and contains minimal additives. Opt for this option over processed pancake syrup. Or, try topping your pancakes with fresh fruit jam, cut fruit, melted peanut butter or any of these pancake toppings instead.
How can I amp up pancake syrup?
Maple and bourbon are a common flavor mash-up. Add 2 tsp. bourbon to the syrup for a slightly less sweet (and boozy) surprise! Be sure to try out these unique pancake syrup flavors, too.
