This is a great-"help I've got no syrup and pancakes for 5"-recipe. My kids don't like the store bought stuff anymore!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 cup hot coffee
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring (I use vanilla extract with 1/2 t. cinnamon)


  1. Bring sugar, coffee and salt to a boil- (cinnamon also if going the vanilla route) Boil for exactly 1 minute-any longer and you will have crystals when it cools.
  2. Stir in maple flavoring or vanilla-serve warm or cool.

Although this doesnt taste like maple syrup, it is actually even better! It has the combination of vanilla and cinammon in the syrup which makes up the main flavour of this syrup. Goes really well with pancakes.

I was looking for a way to stretch out my maple syrup to save money.(It's expensive in Australia and I hate the flavoured stuff). I added 250ml maple syrup, the cinnamon and vanilla. It was wonderful, made about 1 litre. I think the cinnamon and vanilla with the coffee really gives it something special. Thank you so much.
