Easy and delicious way to celebrate fall season starting is to add some Homemade Pumpkin Syrup to fluffy buttermilk pancakes. This homemade topping is easy to make and it goes perfectly with pancakes, waffles, ice cream, and many other treats.
As I mentioned above, this is my first pumpkin recipe of Fall 2014! Actually, it’s first on the blog but about 100th for the season.
Wondering why in the world would I be making 100 pumpkin recipes?
Well, if you have been my long time follower on Facebook and Instagram, you already know that I’m working on something special. I’m working on a cookbook featuring everyone’s favorite fall ingredient… Pumpkin!!
Yes, I will have a cookbook published and it is scheduled for release in September, 2015! How exciting is that?!
Needless to say that I’ve been making way too many pumpkin treats lately. My mind is constantly working on new recipe ideas and my hands are constantly working on making those ideas a reality. This pumpkin syrup is definitely one of those ideas. I love making different homemade syrups and even shared a few on this blog. You should check out my Homemade Blueberry Syrup, Pomegranate Syrup and Coconut Syrup. It’s a great way to bring different flavors to your favorite breakfast foods, like pancakes and waffles. It’s also perfect for sticky buns, bread pudding and fall themed sundaes.

I love making homemade pumpkin spice lattes and I think I’ll make this tonight and use it as a base in my PSL’s! Thanks for Sharing 🙂

OMG!!!! I made the pumpkin syrup yesterday so I’d have it on hand for making PSLs now that it’s getting cooler. I added 6Tbs pumpkin puree instead of 5. I took the remaining puree and scooped out individual 2Tbs scoops of puree, froze them and have them stored in the freezer in a zip bag. This morning I combined in a small saucepan 1 cup skim milk, 3-4Tbs half n half, 1 scoop of the frozen pumpkin puree, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 3 Tbl of the pumpkin syrup. Warmed all until tiny bubbles formed along the edge of the pan. I used my handheld frother to froth up the milk/pumpkin/syrup mixture Using my Keurig, I brewed on the smallest setting a cup of SB’s Fall Blend k-cup and added the warmed milk/pumpkin mixture to the cup…. talk about OUTRAGEOUS! My PSL was by far the best I’d ever made. Thought it was a $5 latte for sure.
Thanks for the pumpkin syrup recipe. It’s definitely a KEEPER!
Oh my gosh! I need to come over for coffee because it sounds fantastic!!
Thank you, Kelli! I’m so glad you liked it!

congrats on the book! loving this syurp idea
Thank you, Heather! Thank you 🙂
This syrup looks so tasty!
One question, would there be a substitute for the corn syrup? We have someone allergic to corn in our family. Thank you!!!!!!
Thank you, Robin!
There are a couple of things you can do. You can add an extra 3/4 cup of white granulated sugar (or brown sugar if you wish). Or, you can use molasses or honey but these two will alter the taste a bit. I hope it will work out well for you!
