Cheater Pancake Syrup

Leetah2Hope

"This was the syrup I grew up with. It tastes fabulous without all the extra work on getting real tapped maple syrup. It's also a cheaper way to have syrup, as these are things I always have in my cupboard."

Very good! I did not add the maple flavoring, I just used vanilla and it was delicious.

Although this is not the recipe we use, I love homemade syrup! I recently learned that covering the syrup and boiling about a minute reduces the chance of your syrup crystalizing.
