spiced maple syrup recipe

Did y’all have a good weekend? We did. The best part, it is not over yet.  Everyone is off tomorrow. In the morning, I just might celebrate the day off with a big stack of buttermilk pancakes with this delicious spiced maple syrup.  Sounds like a good way to start the day if you ask me. This syrup really makes plain pancakes special.  You can make the little spice packet and use it to flavor apple cider, or just simmer it in some water to perfume your house. But I really like it in maple syrup.  I would also bet that it would be amazing in baked oatmeal, or whipped into some whipped cream to top an apple pie or apple crisp.

It is amazing how much you can accomplish when your calendar is empty on a long weekend. I cooked, crafted, relaxed, and spent time with my family. Wes and I even had a couch date and watched Bridesmaids. That movie was a riot. Today, more cooking, baking, and spending time with my family. Thanks Christopher Columbus for discovering America so that we have a long weekend.

  1. my mouth is watering, this looks delicious!

  2. Oooh, I bet the peppercorn is really great in the syrup. I never would have thought to put that in. I LOVE the glass jar you put the syrup in before putting in the fridge. Where did you find it? I must it admit, it’s the lid I love so much!

    Didn’t think it was possible to make maple syrup any more Autumn-y but you have accomplished it! Yay for Christopher Columbus but especially yay for you.

  7. Denise @ TLT says:

    This is such a great idea! Perfect for this season, I can almost smell it by just looking at these pictures:)

    Oh my goodness… I can’t wait to make this! My parents make their own maple syrup (well, dad does most of the work and mom cleans up the sticky mess after) from trees on their property and it is to die for. It has a richer flavor (kind of smoky) and it’s hard to eat the store-bought variety after having the “real deal.” Thanks for sharing, Bree!

  9. What a lovely and creative recipe, Bree! This syrup looks absolutely delicious. I put the pure storebought stuff in homemade vinaigrettes sometimes, but I bet this with its fall spices would really take them over the edge! Delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Hi! I was searching for something on my google reader and came across this. It looks fantastic! I can’t wait to try it not only in maple syrup but in whipped cream as well. Thanks!
