Today the kids didn’t have school and everyone wanted dippy eggs with waffles and of course I was low on syrup. Which isn’t a big deal since I can whip up a batch in 10 minutes or less. But I wanted to try something different and not use corn syrup. I decided to substitute the corn syrup with honey and go from there.
The honey has a strong flavor so I added more maple flavoring to compensate. Needless to say — the syrup came out very tasty!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons Honey
- 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
- Combine sugar, water and honey in a small pan. Bring to a boil, uncovered, over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and stir in maple flavoring.
- Let cool, then pour into a glass jar, cover and refrigerate.
Makes about 1-1/2 cup
