Make your own copycat Aunt Jemima maple syrup, the rich, thick buttery syrup that everyone loves! While real maple syrup arguably has the best flavor, this copycat recipe comes in at a close second.
Copycat Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup
2 C water
1 C sugar
2 C dark corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp maple flavoring
In a medium saucepan combine water, sugar, corn syrup and salt over medium heat. Stir once to mix, then stop stirring bring it to a boil for about 6 minutes. You do not need to stir it once it begins to boil.
Remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool 10 minutes, then add the maple flavoring. If you prefer butter flavored maple syrup, add 3 tablespoons of butter with the addition of the maple flavoring.
