Cinnamon Syrup


January 4, 2011 by Flora Dawn

If you follow my blog you have probably noticed we really like breakfast at my house. Well, let me rephrase, my family really likes breakfast. I am not too much of a morning person, but they have to eat, so what can I do?

My oldest daughter has a tree nut allergy, add eating gluten free, and your choices of cereals is pretty limited. So, I am making pancakes, waffles, and other breakfast fare more mornings than not.

Although my kids would just eat plain ole pancakes or waffles everyday if I would let them; I am not be so keen on the idea. I mix it up a little by making pumpkin pancakes, pear pancakes, teff pancakes, and Johnnycakes. It sort of helps me keep my sanity.

Depending on the pancakes or waffles we typically use smashed up or diced fruit or maple syrup for a topping. Well, here is another choice, Cinnamon Syrup. I am not even going to try to claim this is healthy; it’s basically sugar and cinnamon, but it is tasty and goes particularly well with banana or pumpkin pancakes. It is also a quick syrup to whip up in a hurry if you ran out of pancake syrup.
