3 fun Pancake and Waffle Syrups! (Gluten/Grain/Nut/Egg Free)

3 waffle sauces

I recently hosted a brunch with a waffle bar featuring my famous crispy waffles! But the stars of the show were actually these lovely syrups I created for the occasion. They are SUPER easy to make, each unique in their texture and flavor, depending on what you're in the mood for.

If you're craving a something really interesting and fruity, I recommend the Cherry Amaretto Syrup. It is simply divine, with complex flavors of cherry and amaretto liqueur, and subtle flavors of orange and cinnamon. Pro tip: after boiling the orange rinds in this heavenly syrup, they become soft and mellow, absorbing the incredible cherry and amaretto flavor. I may or may not have eaten them as a snack.

For something comforting and creamy, I would go with the Cinnamon Roll Syrup. Its a simple cream cheese base with the essential flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. I made this with palm sugar to give it that dark sugar quality.

The Cinnamon Beer Syrup. Has a fantastic complex flavor. Perfect served with bacon!

    I have been trying and trying to sign up for Club Angel before the price changes. When I ask for a new password, I get a link that leads me right back to *forgot your password* page and I never get to set my password so I can’t get in to order.
    Thank you for your help.
