Links We Love: Maple Syrup

NOTE: Scroll to the bottom of this post to learn about the winner of our Maple Syrup Festival Prize Pack.

As we have been celebrating all things maple syrup this week in honor of the upcoming Nation Maple Syrup festival, we have come across several great syrup/pancake related sites that we just had to share with you.

One of the first site's that caught our eye was Tracey's Culinary Adventures. Her Cake Batter Pancakes are the perfect treat for a birthday boy or girl.

Then there is Jim's Pancakes. Jim's site says he is "just trying to make some cool pancakes for my daughter" and he has definitely achieved his goal. You have got to see his 3-D Dinosaur Bones pancakes. AMAZING! 

Carrots 'n' Cake shares A Really Good Pancake Recipe that uses Greek Yogurt in the batter.

Joy the Baker shares a beautiful stack of Milk Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes that are simply gorgeous.

The Pancake Project brightens things up with brilliant color pancakes perfect for the kiddos

Besides the traditional use, our fantastic Facebook Fans use maple syrup in a lot of great ways.

Besides pancakes, what other ways do you use maple syrup at your house?

  • Nathan Miller likes this.
    • Lana Lyons Wallpe I like it on ice cream!

    • Nathan Miller In cookies and cakes for a substitute for molasses and brown sugar.

      Also if you hollow out strawberries, line them on a cooking sheet drizzle syrup in them and bake them at 425 for 15 min! A healthy quick sweet treat!

Their creativity got us looking for other great uses on the web.

The Insane Chicken makes a mouth watering Maple Syrup Barbecue Sauce.

The Food Network's Bobby Flay adds a kick of sweetness to his Red Beef Chili with some maple syrup.
