How do I Make Syrup With Brown Sugar?


Making brown sugar syrup is simple and easy. It does not require many ingredients and it is better to make it at home than buy the processed version from the supermarket. This particular recipe will keep in the refrigerator for up to a month, so you could make a large batch and store it easily. You can use this syrup on waffles, pancakes, fruit salad, sponge cakes and many more delicious foods.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar (normal white sugar)
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter (or you could use margarine)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (optional)
  • Saucepan
  • Cup

How to Make Brown Sugar Syrup

  • Carefully measure out the white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup and water. Place into the saucepan.

  • Put the saucepan on the stove to cook. Put your heat up high until the water boils, then reduce the heat and simmer well until the mixture reaches a syrupy consistency. This will probably take about 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Add in the butter (or margarine) and the nuts. Keep the pan simmering and keep stirring until all the butter has melted and blended in.

  • Take the mixture off the heat. Let the mixture cool down for a few minutes before serving. The mixture should thicken as it cools.

  • Serve the syrup. You can now add the syrup to the food you are serving directly or you can place in a pretty jug so that people can help themselves.

Tips & Warnings

  • Give yourself enough time to make the mixture.
  • Make a large batch and store in the refrigerator.
  • Instead of nuts, add a little cinnamon.
  • Always let the mixture cool before serving.
  • If you are using nuts, check to make sure that no one has a nut allergy.
