I've never had a Mcgriddle before so I can't compare the flavor. I made a big batch of this for OAMC, flash froze on parchment line cookie sheet and wrapped in wax paper for an easy microwave breakfast. I added maple flavoring to the pancake mix, I tried a leftover pancake and found it kind of bland. This a.m. prior to nuking I pried it apart and squirted some syrup in between the layers.
I used my own homemade pancake syrup. These were lovely-Thanks so much for sharing! PANCAKE SYRUP 2 cups of sugar 1 cup of water 1/2 tsp. maple extract Combine sugar and water. Stir until dissolved. Bring to a boil. Cover, boil gently for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat to cool slightly. Add maple flavor. Stir only until mixed. Makes about 1/2 qt.
I think the reason it doesn't taste as much like maple syrup as the one's from McD's is because they used artificial flavoring (see below), buy some maple flavoring used in cookies and candy and I am sure you will get the taste you are looking for.
