Yum! We enjoyed this. Good flavor from the molasses. I used 1t vanilla and about 1/2t maple flavoring. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Made this when I ran out of syrup one morning. The kids did not care that I made homemade syrup but I thought the flavor was amazing. I added a tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of maple flavoring. WOW! Oh, I also used molasses. This replaced my old syrup recipe.
