This is not the typical syrup but I really did like it. I put it on buttermilk pancakes and found it to be a light, pleasing taste. I did use 1 teaspoon of vanilla becuae 2 seemed too much. I could always add more I decided. For me 2 would have been too much. Do try!

Oh my vanilla! The syrup was verrrry liquidy...I put it in the freezer to try and get it to only helped a little. The biggest issue here is the amount of vanilla. I made 4 servings of this and my gut told me 2tbs & 2tsp of vanilla sounded absurd, but I did it anyway

This had a very nice flavour. After chilling in the fridge for awhile, though, mine was still completely liquid, not syrup at all. I made it exactly as the recipe stated but perhaps I measured my butter incorrectly or something. No matter, even though it was liquid I put it on my oatmeal pancakes and it tasted great! UPDATE: I also recently made this to put on Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes from this site and that was a great flavour combo! Was still very liquidy again, but not a big deal.

I upped this recipe to four servings. I used buttermilk instead of regular milk. That was the only change I made. We had this over Herman pancakes and it was so good--though it had a LOT of vanilla. Quadrupled, it was two tablespoons and two teaspoons of vanilla! I'd like to make this again cutting back a bit on the vanilla and with a touch of cinnamon. Very simple and a good fill in for when you're out of pancake syrup.

Very good. Used coconut milk because I didn't have regular milk on hand. Used only one teaspoon of vanilla extract. Not very thick but tasty.

I did a test run on this syrup without having a reason to use it but I tasted delicious and I'll definitely whip them up the moment I'm in need of a syrup.

I made pancakes one morning and realized that we did not have any syrup. I looked this up & had all of the ingredients & it turned out great! We really enjoyed this. very easy to make.
