Wonderful Homemade Syrup
This is a recipe for pancake syrup that has been called so good that you will want to lick the pan. It is a very simple recipe and does not take very long to make at all. All you need to make this is one half (1/2) cup of butter, one (1) cup of sugar, one (1) cup of buttermilk, one (1) tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, one (1) tablespoon of corn syrup, one fourth (1/4) teaspoon of freshly ground cinnamon, and one half (1/2) teaspoon of baking soda.
Get your butter, sugar, buttermilk, pure vanilla extract, corn syrup and your cinnamon and put them all into a nice, big saucepan. And turn that eye up to medium high heat. All of these things are going to come to a nice simmer and once that happens you want to whisk in your baking soda, slowly. After the baking soda is whisked in and you cannot see it anymore, let it cook for about ten (10) seconds and then take it off the eye. You want to serve it warm, because there is just nothing like warm syrup on pancakes.
Prepping all your ingredients may take about five (5) or six (6) minutes and cooking time is going to be about the same. This recipe should only take about 10 minutes from start to finish. That is–if you know what you’re doing and you don’t burn your syrup. If you do that, I would add another five minutes to do it again, and maybe seven or eight minutes to clean that burnt pan.
This is a lot different then your normal ‘maple syrup’, it’s got a much more rich, buttery flavor to it that adds a lot to pancakes. This way you get your butter and your syrup on those ‘flapjacks’ in one swoop instead of two. The recipe yields two and a half (2.5) cups of syrup, which depending on how many growing boys or husbands with big appetites you have in the house will make eight to sixteen (8-16) servings. I would say in my house it is closer to ten (10).
I would not call this homemade pancake syrup healthy, but it is comparable to adding normal maple syrup and butter to your pancakes. Each serving is around one hundred and eighty (180) calories and ten (10) grams of fat.
Please do enjoy.
