Homemade Pancake Syrup

Whenever any of my friends find out that I make my own syrup,
they always ask for the recipe. This is the syrup I grew up on ~ hot, sweet and thick and very easy to make!
Pancake Syrup
1 c white sugar
2/3 c brown sugar
1/2 c water
Bring to boil in medium saucepan
over high heat.
Boil and stir about 30-60 seconds,
until the drips on your spoon
start to thicken.
Remove from heat.
Stir in 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
and 1 T butter.
I like to serve it in my little Homer Laughlin pitcher. Yum!


  1. Oh... my... goodness. I just had to attach my drool cup.

    What time shall we all drop by for breakfast? :)

  2. BP ~ you are welcome anytime. :) You bring the Mayan and I'll make the waffles!

  3. I'm going to try this one -- it's too easy not too, and cheap!

    P.S. Thanks for your comments on the hunger strike. He's still touchy about food but this a.m. he ate 2 bowls of oatmeal -- his first decent meal in at least 2 days.

  4. Looks really yummy! I haven't had waffles in ages! Haven't made my own syrup in ages, either. Got stuck on the pure maple. Now I'm going to have to get out my belgian waffler!

  5. willow ~ you get out your waffler and I'm going to go buy a frier like you have! If we keep talking and cooking, we will eventually own all appliances known to man! :)

  6. That looks positively delectable. I am going to try this recipe. I am almost out of maple syrup and this will tide me over until my next bottle. Who knows, I may even prefer it to maple syrup!

  7. My good fortune to have found your wonderful blog..through Willow...My mother actually made our syrup when I was a child...You have added much more than she used...sounds delicious..I guess everyone reading your blog today will have waffles sometime soon :)
