Pancakes are one of our family’s favorite breakfast foods. While they can be a bit time consuming to make, pancakes don’t have to be reserved for Saturday or Sunday morning.

Why make homemade syrup?

I have found that the easiest way to have homemade pancakes available on busy weekday mornings is to make them in advance. I make up a large batch of pancakes all at once and I freeze them. That way, we always have them on hand for an easy breakfast, no matter what kind of crazy morning we are having.

Most of the time, I like to serve pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit or berries. If you aren’t familiar with its origins, true pure maple syrup is made from the sap of maple trees.

In the fall, the trees are tapped and the sap is collected. The sap is then cooked down until it becomes that wonderful thick syrup that we know and love.

The real stuff can get a little pricey, though, so I sometimes go back to standard pancake syrup.

I always make a double batch of homemade syrup, because when Saturday morning rolls around, and the boys are asking for homemade pancakes again, I want to be ready. This syrup is also delicious on homemade waffles, fluffy pancakes, french toast, or even vanilla ice cream.

Check out the easy recipe below.

Tips and Tricks:

  • For a thicker syrup, allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes and reduce in volume. Remove from heat once it has reached your desired consistency.
  • Try making this easy recipe with just brown sugar or use a mixture of really dark brown sugar and white sugar.
  • Give other flavors of syrup a try by substituting the maple extract with another extract of your choice. Use vanilla extract for homemade vanilla pancake syrup or try coconut, almond, or strawberry syrup.
  • Store leftover syrup in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Leftover pancakes can be frozen, separated with parchment paper and placed inside of a freezer bag for easy access. Reheat pancakes for one minute in the microwave.
