This takes only minutes to make, it's a great addition to top off your almost finished store-bought syrup to increase the quantity although I must say it's actually good enough to use on it's own just as a syrup, this will thicken in up the fridge --- you will love this!


  1. In a large saucepan combine the white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer stirring for 3 minutes (watch closley this will run over the pot easily!).
  2. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and maple extract; cool to almost room temperature (you can chill for faster cooling) then add to your bottle of store-bought syrup.
  3. Seal tightly and refrigerate.
  4. This will last as long as your bottled pancake syrup.

I've been purchasing the expensive syrup, but we've been going through it since I discovered baked french toast. This is a great inexpensive way to have syrup. Did not have any maple extract like I thought, so just added a bit extra vanilla. Tasted wonderful. As always a great recipe from Kittencal.
