This Homemade Pancake Syrup only requires 3 ingredients ~ and is super simple & quick to make!
Today I’m over at Kenarry Ideas for the Home sharing one of our family favorite recipes. It was a tradition in my husband’s family ~ Creamy Vanilla Sauce Waffle Topping.
I had never heard of such a thing until my Mother-in-Law started whipping some up one night to go with homemade waffles.
I’ll admit, I was skeptical…
But, I’m telling you what-It’s scrumptious!! Trust me, you want to give it a try.
Head over to Kenarry (here) to get the whole recipe.
I mentioned at the bottom of the post that you can serve the waffles with just the creamy vanilla sauce and fruit. But, our boys prefer it in combination with syrup.
I grew up with Mom making syrup, and have continued on the tradition.
How to Make Homemade Pancake Syrup
It’s super simple and just requires these 3 ingredients:
- brown sugar
- white sugar
- optional ~ flavourings such as maple or cinnamon
To make the syrup, you simply combine equal parts brown sugar, white sugar, and water.
I usually use 1 cup of each.
1 cup water + 1 cup brown sugar + 1 cup white sugar
If you’d like to have a less sugary syrup, it also works to add extra water (like 1 1/2 cups instead of 1 cup).
Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and stir together.
Turn burner on to high heat and heat until the syrup comes to a rolling boil. Boil for a few minutes ~ or until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is clear.
Remove from heat and add flavouring (if desired, we usually don’t).
Pour into a serving container and enjoy with waffles, pancakes, french toast, or cornbread.
This syrup is a thinner consistency than store bought syrups. If you like your syrup extra thick, this probably isn’t the kind for you.;)
Store leftover syrup in the refrigerator and heat again when you want to use it.
