"Very simple - and much-preferred in our home over store-bought. This was shared by my Amish sister-in-law. Hard to beat - and you can flavor it as you wish!"

"This is delicious. I've been looking for a good recipe rather than the bland suggestion on my maple flavoring bottle. While good the first morning, it tasted even better the next day after it had time to chill and thicken. Very good stuff. The brown sugar makes it. Thanks."
"Another 5 star review for your wonderful pancake syrup! I used light brown sugar and light corn syrup as that is what I had on hand. I added approximately 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and 1/4 tsp. of maple flavoring. Mmmm, it's so good. It tastes a lot richer than the store bought stuff. After mine cooled I poured it into an empty Log Cabin bottle. I was confused whether I could store it in the pantry, or if it needed to go in the refrigerator, so I sought the opinion of several people, including the recipe submitter and my Mom. Everyone agreed that it would be safe in the pantry. Thanks again for your GREAT recipe!!"
"Very good! Thanks"
"Fantastic and so simple to make. No more store-bought for us anymore. Thanks for sharing."
"Excellent recipe! I made this recipe yesterday morning after realizing that I did not have enough syrup for my family's breakfast. My DH doubted that any homemade syrup would be as good as store-bought. But now, I'm not sure I'll ever buy syrup again! Thanks for saving me from a bind...and thanks for a great recipe!"
"Homemade pancake is great simple. I needed a ratio of water to sugar so I googled and found this one. I delete the corn syrup but increase the sugar. I use "white" sugar and raw brown sugar from the health food store. Even with no flavoring it is good. I usually boil @ 15 min @ medium heat. I store it in the frig since in the haet of summer it gets a microbial growth on it if it's not used within a month or so."
"This was really good and easy. I ran out of pancake syrup so I made and we loved it. I didn't even have the maple to add, just the vanilla. VERY GOOD."
"Yum, yum, yum! This recipe has been a much needed breakfast-saver for me twice now! Makes a bunch, so for DH and I it pour it from a sauce pan into a pyrex measuring cup, cover it with plastic wrap and it lasts us a few weeks worth of weekend breakfasts. I use the light Karo syrup and instead of vanilla flavoring I use butter flavoring...yum!"
"We all thought this was good and saved me from a trip to the store. Thanks for posting!"
"We were short on syrup so I turned to the zaar for help. I did not have any maple flavoring so I used almond and vanilla. It was wonderful!! A nice break from the store bought stuff. I like many others will be making this from now on... and I will get some maple flavoring for the next batch."
"My picky teens loved this and I used a cheaper brand of corn syrup. They said the syrup was not as thick as store bought and that is why they liked it ."
"The skeptics here gave this a big two thumbs up. And I loved it too. This is so much more affordable than even the cheapie syrups at the store and so much more flavorful. The only thing better than this is 100% real maple - and that costs a bundle! Thanks for this great recipe."
"This is a lovely recipe, not too sweet, the kids loved it. I have made this 4 times this week alone, not just for the family but nieces and nephews love it too. Thanks for an inexpensive alternative."
"OMG!! This was really good. I was out of the store bought kind and with grandkids wanting pancakes I had to make some. I used splenda brown sugar instead and maple pecan flavoring. The kids ate it up and did my dh. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I will be making this again and again! No more store bought for us."
"Wonderful Syrup! I am so glad to find this recipe. My DS likes name brand syrup, but I don't like the high fructose corn syrup that's in it. The rest of our family likes pure maple syrup, but it can get expensive. I added more maple flavoring and about a tablespoon of molasses, just to give it a stronger flavor - trying to make it taste similar to the name brand syrup. My DD & I really like it, now we'll have to see if DS can tell the difference."
"PHENOMENAL!!! So Good! VERY easy! I couldn't find Maple Flavoring at the store, but it didn't matter. I used 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (suggestion from another review) and it came out spectacular! Thank you WJ for submitting the recipe!! I am NEVER buying syrup from the store again."
"I had no syrup in the house and Husband wanted french toast. My computer was on so, I did a quick search and found this simple quick recipe. I used half light and half dark corn syrup because it was all I had on hand and only the Vanilla extract. It is great and Just like store bought."
"This worked out great for my kids. I had made pancakes but forgot to stock up on syrup so I tried this recipe. I tried to drip the maple & vanilla in the mix but it came out too fast so mine probably had a tsp. or more of each flavor. It is a bit sweeter & runnier than the store brands but my kids don't mind. Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"Very easy and delicious. I used dark brown sugar, and didn't have any maple flavoring so I used vanilla and butter flavorings. I look forward to trying it again with the maple flavoring. Thanks for sharing!"
