Make your own pancake syrup right at home! You probably have all the ingredient on hand! This would make a nice gift, with some pancake mix, a spatula, and maybe a frying pan in a basket. Adapted from Meal Master.

I will never buy syrup again from the store! This is better tasting and thicker. I used what I already had in my pantry. It makes alot and I just put in the fridge.

This is wonderful. Who knew making your own pancake syrup could be so easy! I halved this recipe because I don't usually can. This is so good and simple. Thanks for sharing!

I scaled this down to have enough to use but not so much to can....yummy stuff and great if you've run out of syrup. Will keep this to use again...thanks Sharon.
