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!
One weekend I was making pancakes for everyone then I realized I didn’t have enough pancake syrup for all of us to share, so I decided to make my own syrup.
After cooking a batch, the syrup was watery but very flavorful. However, it will totally thicken up once it cools down. And after you make a batch of syrup, you won’t want to buy syrup from the grocery store again!
And don’t try to double this recipe, because the recipe won’t work… the ‘chemical magic’ unfortunately will be against you. So one batch at a time, only.
So my daughter’s birthday party is coming up and we’ll be making snow cones, lots of snow cones for her Frozen themed party. Today I made some simple syrups flavored with Kool Aid for our snow cone flavors. My husband originally bought the packets for me….. and forgot a blue packet… so now I must now remember to go out tomorrow and pick up a blue Kool-Aid packet! So I have one simple syrup bottle just waiting to be flavored!
