    I recently shared my pumpkin pancake recipe and made this delicious cinnamon syrup to serve with it. The syrup was the perfect addition and had a melt in your mouth brown sugar and cinnamon flavor. Plus it was SO easy…made in 15 minutes with only 5 simple ingredients!

    Once you make this cinnamon pancake syrup, you may never buy store bought again! It’s THAT good. It makes the perfect addition to pancakes, waffles and french toast! This would also taste delicious served over desserts like a baked apple crisp with ice cream. Seriously divine!

    Storage

    Cinnamon syrup will keep for up to 1 month if stored in a covered jar in the refrigerator. I like to keep mine in a glass mason jar. To reheat, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the pancake syrup is warm.
