Jell-o Pancake Syrup

(12 servings)

  • 1 small box Jell-o or other flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
I should say first that this is a real working recipe. It might seem like a child's experiment, but I'm 52 years old and have used this for many years.

The directions are very simple:
  • Mix the gelatin, sugar, cornstarch and water together in a small saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.

  • Pour into pitcher and let cool until syrup thickens slightly.
Serve over pancakes or waffles while still warm.

You might consider cutting the ingredients in half if you're only serving a small group. This syrup doesn't store well -- it becomes to thick over time.

Enjoy as many flavors of pancake syrup as there are flavors of Jell-o with this easy recipe.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank MamaMia for this recipe.
