The number one requested breakfast in our home is a plate full of fluffy pancakes with sweet syrup. I could buy a new bottle of pancake syrup each week, but that would use up a lot of extra plastic (which we try our best to avoid) and it would be an additional expense on our grocery bill. Instead of buying syrup for my hungry husband and kiddos, I make my own homemade pancake syrup!

Pancake Syrup Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water or milk {milk if you want a creamy syrup}

2. Boil

Boil for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat. Whisk gently to avoid scorching.

3. Remove from heat

Remove the sauce pan from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla extract. Add the baking soda slowly because it will cause the entire mixture to bubble up. If you do not have baking soda, you can use 1 1/2 tsp baking powder instead.

4. Whisk

Whisk to incorporate all ingredients in this pancake syrup recipe.

5. Let it rest

The mix will bubble when stirred so you can let it rest for a few minutes to allow the bubbles to settle.
