what to do when you’re out of syrup

syrupI made French toast this morning, realizing only after doing so that there was maybe a teaspoon of maple syrup in the house.

No worries. Google saved the day, providing a plethora of recipes for a wide variety of syrups. Here’s what I ended up going with, a mashup of several recipes, based on the ingredients we had on hand:

All-Out-of-Syrup Syrup

3/4 c. brown sugar

1 T. butter

1/2 c. water

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 T. flour

Stir brown sugar, butter, and water in saucepan over medium heat. Add vanilla. Gradually stir in flour. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

Pour into a Trader Joe’s Maple Syrup bottle and serve. Voila!
