Once I realized how easy it was to make syrup, I never bought it from a store again. Really, it is so easy to just whip up while you are waiting for your pancakes to cook, and you are left with many more servings of it afterwards. So be sure to have a syrup bottle, to store extra syrup. It’s a simple 2:1 ratio of sugar and water, so make as much or as little as you’d like. I have a feeling that you will be wanting to replace your usual syrup with this one from here on out.

⏱️ 10 mins
Makes 2 cups

  • 1 cups water
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup, flavoring, or vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water and brown sugar until dissolved. Whisk over medium heat. Continue to whisk occassionally until boiling. Cook for 4 additional minutes.
  2. Mix in maple syrup and butter until melted.
  3. Pour syrup into a dispenser and enjoy. πŸ˜ƒ

Don’t forget to pair this syrup with my Sunday Morning Pancake recipe. To reheat, I simply place they syrup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Comment and let me know if you will be trading in your store-bought syrup with this made-from-scratch syrup.
