This easy homemade maple flavored syrup is perfect for pancakes!


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 and 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. whiskey (I used Bushmills Irish Whiskey)
  • 1 tsp. maple extract (or imitation maple flavoring)


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk all ingredients together and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Whisk occasionally and simmer for 20-25 minutes until syrup has thickened.
  2. Pour over pancakes or waffles and serve immediately. You can store extra syrup in an airtight container in the fridge for several months – just reheat it whenever you need it!
