How do I make pancake syrup?
First, combine the corn syrup, sugar and water in a sauce pan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Boil until slightly thickened.
Remove from heat. Now, it is time to stir in the maple flavoring and vanilla.
Let it cool. It will thicken as it cools so don’t worry if it seems thin.

We originally just made a “homemade” label (made with love) for an old syrup container, but this thing is hard to pour into and impossible to clean. We are getting one of these Syrup dispensers. This will be MUCH easier to make and use.

And it looks so cute too! I love this syrup dispenser!

You need to try it Amee!
Oh great idea Marybeth!
I would like to triple the recipe, but how long will it keep in the fridge?
It keeps for about a month in the fridge.
I have tried a few of the pancake syrup recipes without much luck. Luck meaning my daughter did not care for them. I came upon your recipe and it looked like something I could work with and that she would like. Your recipe had all the flavors I was looking for but I tweaked them just a bit. I used 1c of brown sugar, 1/2c white sugar, 1/2 c lite corn syrup, 3/4c water, 1 and 1/4tsp maple flav, 1/8tsp vanilla and 1/4tsp salt. For us it was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe which gave me great inspiration.
Thanks os much for the suggestions. I’ll have to try yours next time. 🙂
Could this be converted to “sugar-free” with the substitution of Splenda Brown and a simple syrup made with regular Spenda?
I grew up on homemade syrup:
2 cups sugar, 1 cup water. Boil to dissolve sugar. When it’s clear add 1/2 to1tsp Crescent Mapleine (or more to your flavor standards.) Mapleine costs about $3.00 for 2 oz.
I store this in the refrigerator, lasts quite a few months without it sugaring. Can use same recipe by adding fruit or fruit pits i.e. Peach Pit syrup.
hi dear, thank u for the wonderful recipe. i tried it was great bt it got hardened aft cooling down. how do i prevent it from getting hard?
Hi Amilea – I find that this happens when I cook it too long. Cook it for a shorter amount of time next time and it should be great. I hope you enjoy!
OK, I’m one happy camper. I made the Maple syrup a few days ago but just now had time to use it. Made homemade Cracker Barrel pancakes from Insanely Good. (Best pancakes I’ve ever had)! Made a whole batch, although I’m just one person. I ate three and will put rest in freezer for emergency days. Poured the Maple Syrup over them….Cloud Nine! Will be removing all other syrup recipes from my “saved” list.
