Homemade Pancake Syrup

Thanks for sharing!

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:

Homemade Pancake Syrup

  • brown sugar
  • white sugar
  • water
  • 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).

Homemade Pancake Syrup

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.
