This is my favorite recipe for syrup..cheap and easy! I use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar; then add 1/2 tsp vanilla along with the maple extract.
I am the "Pvt Amy" of Pvt Amy's Mom" so obviously, she is my mommy. I love this syrup so much, I can't even use regular syrup for anything anymore, it's either this syrup or completely 100% natural maple syrup.. nothing else works.
I have been using this recipe for a couple of years now. Absolutely love it and so much better then store brand!
Simple, yet SO delicious!
I love how quick and easy this is to make, and the flavor was surprisingly much better than I expected! This recipe saved me as I was making something that needed maple syrup and realized last minute that I didn't have enough for the recipe. I believe we will continue using this since my husband didn't even notice it wasn't his usual maple syrup the next time he used it ;)
Wow...I had a craving for pancakes this morning but no syrup, so naturally I came here to find a syrup recipe and this is THE ONE!!! I doubled the recipe and used a tblsp. of pure maple extract. It was exactly the same as the real maple syrup that costs quite a bit in the grocery store. I will not be buying syrup ever again. Thanks so much for posting this.
Love this recipe. It is what I had growig up, and all I use now.
My mom always made her own maple syrup but when I got married (the 1st time) 29 years ago, I decided to simplify and go with the "Aunt". This was my first time to make maple syrup like mom's and I don't know why I ever bought a bottle! This is easy, tastes great and, if its a little thin, just let it boil for a few minutes longer (stir it frequently) then let it cool just a bit to thicken up - think candy making technique. Thanks for the great memory and recipe!
This was a lifesaver! As I was almost finished making a batch of pancakes, I realized I only had enough syrup for one serving. I made this up while the rest of the pancakes cooked. It is sweeter and runnier than store-bought, but that was fine. I'll definitely keep this in my file for the next emergency!
I was out of syrup for breakfast, so recipezaar to the rescue, although this recipe wasn't as good as the reviews led me to believe. Sorry, this syrup was too runny and too sweet. I'd rather have store bought. Roxsan-Utah
