My dad makes his own maple syrup all the time and when I was younger, I was convinced that he must be a cooking genius to be able to make syrup from scratch. He still may be a really good cook, but it turns out that maple syrup really isn’t that hard to make.
I love pouring it over some nice, hot pancakes and topping it off with some cool whip. Best. Breakfast. Ever.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1-1/2 tsp. maple extract
- Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil – For thinner syrup, remove immediately. For thicker syrup, let boil for 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add maple extract.
- Stir until well combined.
