My mother in law gave this recipe to me, it was out of an old cookbook, it tastes wonderful and the kids love it.
- 4 cups white sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons butter flavoring
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons burnt sugar flavoring
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons maple flavoring
- Place all but maple flavoring in a medium saucepan, start to cook over medium heat but, turn temperature down just when it reaches a boil.
- Simmer just 10 minutes and remove from heat.
- Cool slightly and add maple flavoring.
- Once cool enough, place in an old syrup bottle, Mrs.
- Butterworths size works really well.
My son had friends over for a sleepover. The next morning I made french toast but realized I didnt have any syrup. We tried this and it was a huge hit. My husband did add 1 TBS of butter. We will stop buying store bought syrup. GREAT
Excellent! I doubled the recipe and added 1 cup of white corn syrup, then canned it. Doubled, it made 5 pints plus 6 ounces. The color and consistency were similar to store bought syrup. My husband loved it--likes it WAY more than anything store bought. I thought it tasted fresher, and all round better than Ms. Butterworth's syrup. Real maple syrup isn't in our budget, but it makes me feel a little better I'm now able to make this. A smidge better than regular store bought, even with the corn syrup (if you can it).
Awesome, and the kids loved it!
