Simple Maple Syrup

This recipe is so simple and so delicious, you’ll never buy store bought syrup again.  All the ingredients used are things that most of us have in our cupboards.


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring/extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugars and water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in maple flavoring. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 cups.

Note:  If you enjoy a more thick maple syrup, cut the water to 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup.  This is a recipe that can be experimented with also.  You can substitute the maple extract with other flavorings like cinnamon extract, or rum extract.  Enjoy!
