Homemade Pancake Syrup for Pancake Day

It's Pancake Day, otherwise known as Fat Tuesday! If you are having pancakes tonight, give this recipe a try. Homemade pancake syrup is awesome! We like it much better than store bought syrup and it is so much cheaper! It is perfect served over my favorite buttermilk pancakes. Yummy!!

Homemade Pancake Syrup

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon maple flavoring (I use McCormick)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the sugars and bring to a boil again, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Add maple flavoring, vanilla, and butter. Stir, boiling, until butter has melted and combined with the syrup. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 hour, this will help it thicken up a little. Serve over hot pancakes.
