You’re gonna want to try this Vanilla Syrup Recipe, like… now.

I recently made this to go into a basket of homemade goodies for an auction I throw in for Highland Games. Throwing for the Cure has become such an amazing event, I am happy that I can contribute something that people not only look forward to but are starting to fight over! The money raised is for such a good cause, I’m glad I can do my little part. My homemade hooch basket almost started some fights this year! 😉

This basket included Vanilla Syrup, Peach Syrup, Strawberry Margarita syrup, Strawberry Ginger Ale Jam and a few other goodies. I thought it would be good to share this recipe since it is SO quick, simple and the most delicious thing ever. I always make up a batch when I make homemade buttermilk waffles or pancakes. It goes perfectly and makes just enough for the morning.

Don’t be intimidated by making your own syrup. It’s much easier than you think! Give it a try next time you’re making the family or that special someone a delicious breakfast. Don’t tell them how easy it is and just let them be impressed at how delicious it is 😉

German Pancakes: An Impressive and Delicious Holiday Breakfast

German Pancake Recipe

Looking to impress your family over the holidays with an out of this world delicious and seriously easy recipe? Give German Pancakes a try. I promise you that regardless of what you’ve heard, this is a foolproof recipe. Clean up is a breeze, making it is simple and the results are an impressive and delicious treat your friends and family will ask for again and again.

With the holidays right around the corner it is nice to have easy yet impressive recipes up your sleeve and this one is no exception, how much easier can you get when you make it in the blender!

AND I’ve got a pro-tip for you to help make clean up even easier! Toss some dish soap in your blender with a few cups of hot water, turn it on and done! You might have a little wiping down left to do, but the majority of the dirty work has been done, especially down in the tiny parts that are hard to clean.

So, this recipe is so easy, but there are a few things I do a little differently than some other recipes. I like mine a little thicker than most, which is why my recipe calls for 9 eggs instead of what most do, which is 6. I also put a bit of cinnamon sugar on the top of mine, while some recipes call for powdered sugar. Either of these are great or a bit of syrup, it is very eggy and fluffy and depending on your taste.

So, you preheat the oven to 425* and put the butter in your pan, in the oven to melt.

Then you simply take the flour, milk, vanilla, salt, and eggs in a blender and blend until smooth!
