Melt In Your Mouth Homemade Pancake Syrup

This recipe is for a thick, rich, brown sugar and butter syrup. It works great with vanilla or maple flavoring, or you can use any other flavorings your heart desires. If you’ve never had homemade pancake syrup before, you’re in for a real treat.

pancake syrup ingredients

Mix ½ cup water with ¾ cup brown sugar and ¼ cup white sugar in a saucepan.

Over medium-high heat, bring to a gentle boil, stirring to dissolve the sugars. Add a pinch of salt.

Remove from heat. Add butter and stir until it’s fully melted and well blended.

Add in the vanilla or maple flavoring (or both!). As it cools, the syrup will get thicker.

Pour into a serving dish or just pour over a stack of homemade pancakes or biscuits. It’s a taste of pure heaven.

For extra flavor, you can add chopped nuts (optional). Simply add 2 tablespoons toasted, chopped walnuts or pecans to the finished syrup.

To toast the nuts, place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and toast for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees. It doesn’t take long at all, so stay close by and keep an eye on them. As soon as you start to smell them roasting, they’re done. Take them out and let them cool before chopping them.

Since there’s butter in this recipe, you’ll want to keep any leftover syrup refrigerated. It’s best when used within 1-2 weeks if it lasts that long!
