Pancake Syrup Tips
What is the best pancake syrup?Pancake syrup is a must-have for a pancake breakfast (check out which boxed pancake mix we think is best!). It needs to be slightly sweet, easy to pour and have a great maple flavor. Learn the difference between pancake and maple syrup.
Is there a healthy pancake syrup alternative?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.

We made this years ago for our camping trips, kids loved it. Then kids moved on and there was no need, however grandkids now enjoy it just as much.

I think the recipe is perfect made as is. I added a pat of butter the second time for richness. Thank you!

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. :-)

Does anyone know how long this keeps in the fridge?

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.
