I like to include butter in the syrup so I don't need to use extra butter on pancakes as it is already in the syrup ready to pour hot! It is even better if pancakes is not hot enough to melt butter well.

This was a lifesaver this morning. Awesome replacement if you don't have maple syrup. Maybe not quite as good as regular syrup, but still really good.

Delicious - good replacement for maple syrup. I cooked until it got to a thicker consistency. Will add maple flavoring next time.

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.

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!

You have no clue how much a bottle of syrup costs in Germany... it's ridiculous! Around 5 Euros! That's why I will make my own syrup in the future! Thank you for the recipe. My hubby and the kids will love it! A big hello from Heidelberg, Germany ;-)

Great on the pancakes we made with butterscotch chips in them. For that recipe, it was definitely a better topping than maple syrup would have been... although I also LOVE maple syrup.

This is my 1st time making this... So I just researched how to make maple syrup with brown sugar because I ran out and I'm only a teenager so I don't have a car yet... and it turns out this recipe is awesome it's even better than regular syrup it doesn't taste 2 sweet.

I love this stuff. Made it this morning from childhood memories. Mom fixed this whenever we had pancakes. We couldn't afford maple syrup in my house in the 50s/60s. Being a bit broke this summer I reverted to my childhood to help make ends meet. My efforts didn't turn out so sell this AM, thus I checked for recipes. Seems I forgot to add butter. Makes a big difference. Other than that. Had forgotten how good it tastes.

The brown sugar and water proportions are the same as the ones my mother used to make the syrup I was brought up on; no other ingredients. Have a suspicion it is an Upper Ohio Valley thing dating back to the upriver movement of sugar/molasses in steamboat days. I boil the mixture for at least 5 but not more than 8 minutes. Much more tasty than maple syrup.

Thank you so much. My grandma used to make this and I have looked and looked for it. We are having some right now with our homemade pancakes.

Grandma also used to make chocolate cake using a brown sugar candy like topping. I am thinking it is this recipe cooked a little longer. Thanks again.

"Some chick", I think it is sad that you can not call your mother for a simple recipe. She probably wants to talk to you, even it is only for a recipe. And as for "bestcook", either have great neighbors or you are full of it. Such an amazing recipe indeed, my girlfriend and I will enjoy it. We also, "googled" it like "Lady A". I think google is taking over the world.
