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.

Was a terrific addition to homemade pancakes, and the kids loved to help. How long will this keep after its made?

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.

From Djimn

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.
