Take your pancakes, waffles, or anything else to the next level with this delicious syrup recipe featuring maple and bourbon. Brunch and breakfast will never be the same!
Add the maple syrup to a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Bring it to a simmer. Be careful. If you don’t keep an eye on it, it can boil over.
Add in the bourbon, vanilla extract, and butter. Return to a simmer and cook for 1 minute.
You can make this ahead of time too. A layer of butter will form on the top when cooled but easily mix in when warmed back up.
Once opened, maple syrup will last about a year in the fridge. So lots of reasons to make these waffles! Butter lasts about 4 months in the fridge but up to a year when frozen.
You can veganize this by excluding the butter. I have not tested it with vegan butter.
