Thanks to having a diabetic sister, I grew up on store-bought
sugar-free syrup, and I loved it. That’s probably also where my love for diet
soda came from. To me there was nothing better than the thick, butter-flavored
sugar free syrup drenching a plate full of my mom’s homemade crepes
. Then I
married my husband and I discovered that his mom had always made homemade syrup,
and it’s not even difficult to make!
Hold up, you can make maple syrup? I was shocked that this
was possible without going out and tapping a sugar maple. Not only does it
taste great, but it’s also easy to switch up the flavors. I recently tried this
slight variation with brown sugar (I have a slight obsession with brown sugar
I really liked it!
Another great thing about this recipe is that you might already
have everything you need in your kitchen cupboards, and if not, a quick trip to
the store and a few dollars will have you pouring this delicious, homemade
syrup over your short stack in no time! Get the recipe //here
What kind of syrup do you like? Have you ever made your own?
