When I posted a recipe for pumpkin pancakes many years ago, one of my lovely readers Brittany commented and shared a recipe for pumpkin maple syrup. Several other people mentioned in the comments that they made the syrup and loved it. That syrup has been on my mind ever since and I finally gave it a try last week!
Brittany’s version (click here and check out comment #3) is more pumpkiny and a little thicker, mine is more mapley and a little thinner (although still thicker than straight-up maple syrup). I served pumpkin maple syrup atop pumpkin pancakes, which was delicious! But I think this syrup would be equally as good (if not better!) served with regular pancakes. It is SCRUMPTIOUS STUFF, this syrup. Mmmmmmmm…
- ¾ cup pure maple syrup
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- Simply whisk all the ingredients together!
- Serve with pancakes, waffles or whatever your pumpkin-loving heart wants!
This is what your plate will look like when you get pumpkin maple syrup involved…empty!
