Thanks Barb, you saved my butt! I promised to make the kids pancakes this morning before I realized that I didn't have enough syrup. It's snowing like crazy and I didn't want to venture out to the store so I searched Recipezaar and found your syrup recipe. It was very good and still warm when we ate it. I put the rest in the fridge for next time. I may not ever buy store syrup again.

Very good and super easy! Not as cloyingly sweet as storebought pancake syrups. I reduced the amount of water to 3/4 cup, because I like a thicker pancake syrup. I added a pinch of salt, because I add salt to every sweet thing I make to create a richer flavor. I used 1/4 tsp. butter flavor, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and a couple drops almond extract to flavor. Yum!

YUM! Extra-curricular wonderful syrup, Barb! And so easy to put together. We enjoyed it on homemade waffles this a.m.! I got me a new bran favorite! Thanks for sharing. Laudee
