How to Make Syrup Recipe: Homemade Pancake Syrup

Can you make homemade pancake syrup?

Yes, you can learn how to make syrup with just a few ingredients found in your home.

We have been on a clean eating kick, since I have been making most of my snacks and food with homemade recipes.

Recently we ran out of syrup.

I was looking for some good substitutes to find out how to make syrup besides the all natural all expensive maple syrup. Let’s face it I am not going to spend $10 on something my kids are just going to lap up and still leave a bunch on the plate. No sense in getting angry at them for not eating more sugar, since maple syrup cost an arm and a leg. That is just not in our budget.

I found a homemade syrup recipe while digging around for a better alternative to learn how to make syrup. While this does contain sugar, it still is made of basic ingredients and super tasty. This butter flavored syrup does not contain any high fructose corn syrup and still tastes amazing. I have never said I am going to give up sugar, just cut back a little.

I was so surprised homemade pancake syrup really tastes so similar to store bought syrup we normally purchase. I feel glad that this one does not contain high fructose corn syrup. Overall cost was way cheaper than the $3 – $4 store bought version. This homemade syrup recipe was probably around $1 to make all together. Yup only a dollar to make and tastes way better than store bought. This syrup recipe gets a 5 thumbs up from my family. Everyone loved it with the homemade pancakes we had the other day. Follow me on Facebook and Pinterest for more homemade recipes I will be making our own homemade pancake syrup from now on.

What do you like to put syrup on? Do you think you would make your own syrup?

    • Yes it is better than the high fructose ones you can buy at the store. It would keep for a little over a week in the pantry. I would say two weeks in the fridge, maybe longer.

  2. You can also add 1 teaspoon of maple flavoring if you want a maple syrup. We live in the Philippines and have been making our own syrup for years! (I use half white or coconut sugar and half brown sugar so no need for the molasses.

    • Great question Jeff. I have never done it. I just did a little research about canning syrup. Yes you can can this, but do not add the butter. Add the butter after you have opened it.
