Pancakes with Peach Syrup

Pancakes with Peach Syrup

Have you ever made your own pancake syrup? If not, I highly recommend it…and you could start with this one. (But be warned, you may never go back to the bottled kind.)

Ever since my little sugar-free stint in August of 2011 (or was it 2012?), I’ve made it a point to squeeze harder in other places of the grocery budget, so that I can buy maple syrup. It’s my pancake and hot cereal sweetener of choice and we use sparingly. (Sometimes I order it from Amazon, using gift cards that I purchased with Swagbucks too!)

The homemade peach syrup calls for 2 peaches, butter and maple syrup with a few dashes of cinnamon.

Again, be warned…you’ll never go back to the bottle.

While the hot cakes are cooking away in the skillet or on the griddle, get these peaches simmering away in the butter syrup and they’ll be ready just when all the pancakes are ready to serve. Delicious weeknight dinner, or weekend breakfast right here friends!

It’s probably not so easy to find since you’ve left Ohio, but I generally buy maple syrup at the farmer’s market. I can get much better value per ounce than the grocery store, and I’m glad to meet the famers who harvest the sap.

This syrup sounds delicious–visiting my in-laws there are roadside stands around with peaches and raspberries, and I bet your recipe is also good with berries!

Thank you!

Agreed Kirsten! Always could find maple syrup cheaper at farmer’s markets than grocery store. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever purchased it from the grocery store, because I couldn’t swallow the markup!

And yes, this maple-butter combo would be amazing with berries too!

Sounds yummy. I like to buy organic grade B maple syrup from Trader Joe’s. If you have one near your area, check them out.

Thanks for the suggestion Dee…we recently got a TJs here in San Antonio, but I don’t venture that way too often. Will have to stop in next time I’m in the area…as I bet their price is fairly reasonable!

This sounds so delicious! I never thought of doing this before! We always have pure maple syrup – and this would be a good way to stretch it and add some variation. I’m assuming you could do the same thing with other fruits?

Oh, and I get my syrup from TJ’s too, and also see it at Costco. After growing up on “Mapleline”, or however you spell it, I am so glad to have some real, thick maple syrup!
