So, you'd like to make pancakes or waffles, but you just realized that you're out of pancake syrup. That's not a problem, because you can create your own syrup right at home, and it can be done in less than 10 minutes. That's quicker than it would take you to run to the store and back home. Plus, you can make your own syrup with your favorite extract flavoring. I make my syrup sugar-free, but you can use regular or light brown sugar as a substitute.


  • 2 1/2 cups of Splenda brown sugar blend; you can use granulated white Splenda or granulated monk fruit as a substitute. If you desire, you can also make this syrup using regular brown sugar or light brown sugar, but then it won't be sugar-free.
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or any other extract that you'd prefer, such as almond, maple, caramel, butterscotch, pumpkin, or banana extract.


In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add 2 1/2 cups of Splenda brown sugar blend and 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring continuously. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Then cook for about 6 minutes. Stir occasionally.


Add 1/2 cup of butter and stir the syrup until the butter is completely melted.


Remove the pan from the burner. Then add 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or any other extract that you'd prefer, such as almond, maple, caramel, butterscotch, or banana extract. Stir well.


Pour your homemade syrup into a syrup dispenser or jar and place it in the refrigerator once it's cool. The homemade syrup will keep for several weeks if stored correctly and if it lasts that long.

About the author: Gin Lee is a native of Arkansas. She studied at the Institute of Children's Literature. She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
