Sure jumped in there and filled the gap. I use syrup on bottom of large pot for custard. Ran out and was so glad to find this to fill the maple syrup gap. Next time I'll use some maple flavoring also... thanks a bunch. Love it.

Wonderful recipe from Rosie! For those who might like a thicker syrup, reduce heat to medium once mixture comes to a boil and let simmer for a minute or so. I also add a teaspoon of vanilla.

I made french toast sticks today and didn't have enough syrup. I knew there was a way to make syrup with brown sugar so when I saw this one, it hit the nail on the head. Grandsons did not leave a drop. Thanks.

Thanks for this recipe. I'd forgotten the proportions and tried to make this earlier, but it took forever to get the syrupy texture. Too much water, and not enough patience since the waffles were cooking when I discovered I was out of syrup. Remembered the vanilla, forgot the butter. MUCH BETTER your way. Thank you for caring enough to share this. It isn't the cost of store bought syrup that irks me, it's the corn syrup. For some reason(Mom :) I am not a fan of straight maple syrup. I may add a taste of molasses the next time for body.

Amazing! I followed the instructions to a tee and it worked! I'm going to use this every time we make pancakes at home. It's quick and it's easy. I also love the light taste of butter in the syrup. And now there's no need for store-bought syrup.

Made this to go with my French Toast Casserole - perfect addition! I added a bit of vanilla at the end, just for fun.

Perfect! Just what I was looking for. Now, I can make my own version of IHOP's Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast... yum!

Great! No high fructose corn syrup. Real butter. Best of all, the family likes it better.

Thanks for the recipe! I decided to make pancakes only to find out that we ran out of syrup. Needless to say, my dad wasn't happy. I live in New England and there's a blizzard out there so I couldn't run to the store, so I found this recipe and it tastes just like syrup! Thank you again!
