Brown Sugar Syrup

A quick and easy homemade syrup that tastes great on pancakes and waffles.

2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp maple flavouring

Stir ingredients together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat and let cool.

We usually have maple syrup on our pancakes or waffles, but sometimes when we run out I’ll make this syrup instead. It’s so quick to make that I can make it on the stove while I’m cooking the pancakes and it’s ready by the time they’re done. I saved one of the glass bottles from maple syrup and use it as a container for this syrup. I keep it in my cupboard and it keeps just fine there. It’s not a large amount of syrup so we use it up failry quickly. You could store it in the fridge if you want too, it just makes the syrup a bit thicker but you can always heat it up a little in the microwave to thin it out.
