Nothing beats the taste of real maple syrup. However, we can’t always afford it or find it. But there’s usually mapleline available, and it makes a serviceable syrup for pancakes if you do it right.



  1. bring water to a rolling boil

  2. add the sugar and stir it until it dissolves

  3. add the mapleline and almond extract


See, the secret is the almond extract. Without it, the mapleline flavour tastes a bit metalic and dull.
