Have you ever whipped up a batch of pancakes for your loved ones on a fine Saturday morning only to find that you are clean out of syrup? Well, it's not a good thing! What to do! Run to the market? No Way! Let's make some from scratch!!
It's a cinch to make and it's a lot easier on the wallet than the real thing.
Homemade Pancake Syrup
makes approx. 4 1/2 pints
2 tbsp butter
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups corn syrup
3-4 tbsp molasses
2 tsp maple extract
Place the water, sugar, and salt into a 4 qt saucepan. Heat on medium until sugar is dissolved. Add the butter, corn syrup, and molasses. Turn up heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Add the maple extract and allow to cool completely.
If you are using this right away you can serve it warm.
Store any remaining syrup in the refrigerator.
Hope your week is shaping up nicely! ;0)
