The Perfect Pancakes and Homemade Syrup

There is almost nothing that I love more than breakfast food,
especially pancakes and syrup.

I've worked long and hard on this recipe and think that I've finally discovered 
the perfect pancake recipe with homemade syrup.

What makes these pancakes so delicious is that they are light and fluffy and 
absorb the pancake syrup perfectly.

I'm getting hungry just writing this!!

Pancakes with Homemade Syrup

For the pancakes:

3 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cups whole milk
1 extra-large egg
3 teaspoons vanilla
5 tablespoons butter

For the syrup:

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla

To make the pancakes:

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, egg, and vanilla.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well.  Melt the butter and add to the mixture.  Combine well.  Grease a skillet over medium heat.  

Cook the pancakes on one side until bubbly all over.  This is when you will need to flip them.

Flip and cook on the other side until done.  Slather with butter and syrup.

To make the syrup:

Combine all of the syrup ingredients in a pan and bring to boil.  Boil for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture is thick and resembles a syrup-like consistency.

Don't they look delicious!!

  1. I need to get our next meal plan together and I was JUST thinking about doing a breakfast for dinner one night. I'm trying your recipe for the pancakes.
    We NEVER had store-bought syrup growing up. My mom always made it and I don't know why I never have. I think I'll finally give it a whirl when our bottle runs out.

  2. These look delicious, and coincidentally, I actually just made homemade pancakes for the very first time over the past weekend! And I had never even thought to make my own syrup~ yum!

  3. Yummy! Is this syrup storable? And if so, how long will it store for?
