Homemade Pancake Syrup
Author: Kelly - Simple Life Mom
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
  • 4 cups Brown Sugar (if using demarara, use 1:1 ratio since it is so sweet)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon Homemade Vanilla Extract
  1. Stir over medium heat until the sugar melts.
  2. When it starts to boil, DO NOT STIR! If you stir after it starts to boil it will later crystallize into a beautiful rock that you cannot pour onto pancakes.
  3. If you have a thermometer, boil lightly until about 220 degrees F. If you don't, let it boil lightly for about 10 minutes then remove from heat.
*** For an extra maple flavoring, buy a little maple syrup and add 2 Tbsp per batch. It adds that maple flavor without using anything fake, and is super frugal!
