made this to go with pancakes. It was easy and awsome. To my surprise my non sweet eating husband really liked it. I feel like I want to serve it with apples or ice cream. A keeper for sure.

WOW this syrup turned out quite thick! It thickened so quickly on my stovetop! But it was delicious. I increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp & used Splenda. I also used cornstarch per previous suggestions & that was a good thing. It smelled & tasted delicious. Thanks SO much!

Tastes nice, easy recipe, but too thick. I will try it next time with 1 tbsp of corn starch or flour. I also increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp. it's more a sauce than a syrup.
