I am not sure if you know this about me yet, but I love pancakes....I mean I seriously love them.... Nothing is better than a hot stack of pancakes...warm butter melting...sweet syrup drizzled over all that goodness....I know I know....
you are probably sick of hearing about my obsession with them. They are my go to recipe, when I have no desire to  be in the kitchen cooking (it does happen I promise). They work for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (in my opinion at least). I know enough already...I should just admit I have a pancake addiction and move on right? Well guess what? I can't! My addiction has only gotten worse lately. I started making my own pancake syrups and I was downhill from there. I just tell myself that the syrups are healthier than store bought (which they are) and then I don't feel so bad for eating my weight in pancakes. It makes me feel a little better at least. We love strawberry syrup, and blackberry syrup, but our favorite has got to be the maple syrup. You seriously need to make some today. Once you go homemade and see how simple it is, you won't be able to do store bought again. Oh and the fact there are no added preservatives or high fructose corn syrup is a HUGE bonus. So declare today a pancake day folks! Eat as much as you want and relish in the sticky, buttery goodness that is a pancake breakfast/lunch/dinner :)

Maple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1 tsp maple flavoring
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbl butter

Bring sugars and water to a boil stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add maple flavoring, vanilla, and butter, stirring to combine and to melt butter.

I store my leftover syrup in my fridge, in a mason jar. You can serve it cold or reheat in the microwave for 45 seconds. Warm syrup is just too good!

Oh and Cinnamon French Toast is awesome when drenched topped in this syrup :)
