Homemade Pancake Syrup

Trying to cut corn syrup out of our diet... so I have found a wonderful pancake syrup recipe and I thought I would share it all with you.

2 cups water
4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. maple flavouring
1/4 tstp. vanilla flavouring


  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. Add sugar.
  3. Boil for one minute.
  4. Cool and add flavoring. (do not add before it is off the heat as the flavouring with boil off)
I save the bottles to put it in once it cools!

Another recipe:

Hot Buttermilk Syrup

1 cup sugar (I generally use a bit less)
2 TBS buttermilk powder
1/8 tsp baking soda, scant
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

Whisk together dry ingredients (including butter milk powder). In saucepan, bring butter and water to a boil. Pour dry ingredients into saucepan, stirring constantly. Bring back to boil and stir for a minute or two. Take off heat and stir in vanilla. It will thicken as it cools.

Note: I was really skeptical of "making" syrup before I tried these two recipes. But, we LOVE them at my house! You can also substitute 1/2 cup real butter milk instead of the 2 TBS buttermilk powder and 1/2 cup water, if you wish.
