Breakfast the easy way! Part 2

Sweet syrup is a staple at the breakfast table.  Growing up, my mom used to make syrup and it was ALWAYS the best.  It is one of the EASIEST things to make, in small or large quantities.  Here is the recipe:

1 part sugar
1/2 part Water
1-4 tbs of desired flavoring (vanilla, maple, etc)

Combine water and sugar into a pot on the stove, mix well and then bring to a boil on high, then reduce to low.  Stirring occasionally (while cooking the rest of your breakfast yummies)
When it returns to a boil, remove from heat and flavor to your preference.  I never measure, but I always use vanilla extract.  It tastes AMAZING!

It is absolutely amazing, quick and easy to make while you are cooking the rest of your breakfast.  I always poor the finished product into a liquid measuring cup before serving.  However, if you have a syrup cup then that would be ideal.  A note, this is a bit more runny than your standard syrup, however I have found that adding molasses or cornstarch, while it does thicken the syrup takes away from the flavor.
