Homemade Maple Syrup

Prep Time:

1 min

Cook Time:

5 min




About the Recipe


2 cups sugar (2 cups white OR 1 cup white, 1 cup brown OR 2 cups brown)

1 cup water

about a ½-1 teaspoon of maple flavoring – or more or less to taste (I don’t measure)

a glop of corn syrup


Add all ingredients and stir periodically until it comes to a full boil. Serve on French toast, waffles, pancakes, or anything else that requires syrup.

My favorite combination is 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown. The brown sugar just makes it have a little richer flavor. The real reason that I like that combination is so that I don’t forget the recipe; I just have to remember 1:1:1 (white, brown, water), flavoring and a glop – very simple.

The corn syrup trick works with anything that can go sugary.
