Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup recipe 2 cups water 1 cup granulated sugar 2 cups dark corn syrup 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon maple flavoring Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally, until the mixture comes to a full boil. Let it boil for 7 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the syrup cool for 15 minutes. Add the maple flavoring and stir. When completely cool, transfer the syrup to a covered plastic or glass container. Makes 1 quart. NOTES: For syrup with a butter flavor, add 3 tablespoons of butter to the mixture before heating. For a lighter syrup, use a sugar substitute instead of the granulated sugar. The absence of natural maple syrup in this recipe is not unusual. In fact, there is no real maple syrup in any Aunt Jemima syrups.

Thanks for this. I am always looking for simple recipes for my daughter, she has only been married for a year and is always trying new dishes and learning new recipes.

My mom used to make "Mock Maple Syrup" as a kid. She simply heated up brown sugar and water, cooked it to a boil and let it sit to cool down. Tastes like the real (fake) thing! I have to admit, I prefer the bottled syrups to real maple when on pancakes. Oddly enough the real thing doesn't seem to have a real maple taste that is as deep as the pretend versions like Log Cabin, etc.

that is exactly what my mother did and the syrup was just as good as from the bottle.

Thanks :)

HMMM this is very good but I would just eat the dark corn syrup as I like it better.
