If GodivaGirl didn't suggest Almond extract, I would've kept on rollin' by this recipe. (Never have maple flavoring, but I ALWAYS have Almond) and I also tossed in a shake of cinnamon. Although very runny, it's good. But, VERY VERY Sweet. Use just enough to soak into the pancake. **UPDATE** Made it again, cutting the sugar by 1/2 cup and using the Maple flavoring. Worth the trip to the store for the Maple Flavor!

What did I do wrong? I've made this twice following the recipe and I keep making candy! When the syrup is hot and warm, no problems. But as it cools, sugar crystals form. Please help as the flavor is great but the consistency is terrible after it cools.

GREAT! I cut this in half and this was enough to fill just over half of a plastic syrup bottle. Way better than the store bought by a mile and super easy. I did add 1 tsp of butter extract along with the 1 tsp. of maple extract and 1 tsp. of vanilla. Good stuff.

I cut this recipe down to 6 servings and used pure almond extract (didn't have maple). This syrup is very sweet and more amber colored and not at all like store bought. I used this with the Whole Wheat Pancake recipe from this site. It did add flavor but I was thought it was too thin. Guess I'm partial to the Absolute Best Syrup recipe from this site.

So easy and tasty! I liked it better than storebought. I was a little worried because I had no corn syrup or maple flavoring, but it worked fine without and still tasted great! Can't wait to try it again with all of the ingredients!

This syrup turned out perfectly -- I think it is better than store bought. Made about 3 cups that I keep in a container in my fridge. Next time, I'd like to try adding another extract (maybe even some rum)! It's also delicious on vanilla ice cream.

I made this recipe and added a shot of brandy! Awesome! Try it!

This is just right! It wasn't too thinned out like other recipes. It makes enough the first time that I don't have to make it every time we need syrup! Thanks!
