Homemade non-maple syrup

March 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

I made this recipe on Saturday, and I have to admit, it is quite delish. If you don’t have maple syrup or maple extract, this is a yummy alternative! Also, I did go a little light on the spices, so I may add a bit more cinnamon and allspice next time. Here’s the recipe:


  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ nutmeg
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 cup water
  • ⅛ cup light corn syrup


Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow mixture to simmer, stirring often until the mixture reaches a syrupy yet slightly runny consistency, about 20-30 minutes (it will thicken slightly as it cools). Remove cloves and serve over warm pancakes or waffles with butter. Store in refrigerator and reheat in microwave whenever you need to use it. Lasts at least 3 months. Yields ¾ – 1 cup.

Note: It is easy to let it simmer and whisk every few minutes while getting pancake or waffle batter together.
