Okie Girl Eats: Homemade Maple Syrup

  I did a couple of different things with our pancakes this morning.  I added crumbled bacon to the batter and I made our syrup.  (I prefer Bisquick for making both pancakes and biscuits.)  I just can't bring myself to buy store bought syrup unless it is 100% pure maple syrup, and at the rate our family of goes through syrup that gets costly.  Then I was reminded by my mother of the syrup she made when I was a child.  Here is the recipe:
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring
Boil water, add sugar and flavor.  Serve when smooth and combined. The syrup will be more the consistency of pure maple syrup. 
 It made more than enough for our family with enough leftover for us to have 2 or 3 more times.  


  1. That is amazing. Who knew that you could make maple syrup? I'll have to try it sometime. :)

  2. Haha! I have some really old Mapleine in my cabinet (don't know where it came from!). I'll have to try that recipe. Every time I see the bottle I start singing: "Oh Mapleine, why can't you be true..." LOL
