The cabin is what inspired today's recipe! Every year at the reunion we have one big, yummy breakfast with all kinds of pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, etc. With 50+ people, room inside is slim when it comes to gathering together and eating a meal. The food is prepared inside and out on grills, griddles, and stoves then brought out to the garage where long tables are set up, ready and waiting to welcome the food. We all dish up out in the garage and eat all around the cabin: frontyard, inside, back deck, etc. For the last so many years, this Holiday Syrup has been made as an option to put on top of the pancakes and french toast at breakfast. This stuff is fabulous and so delicious. One of the best things I've ever tasted!
This recipe would be doubled for a large group like at one of our family reunions.
The image above comes from Budget Gourmet Mom, who makes a very similar recipe for this syrup. Big thanks to her!! She agrees with me on how delicious this stuff is. In her words: "I want to make a bazillion gallons of this then take a bath in it."
