This is one of the recipes I made yesterday. I usually double it when I make it. The cost analysis below is for one batch. This recipe came from Frugal Abundance (formerly Hillbilly Housewife), by way of MomAdvice.com.
Homemade Pancake Syrup
2 cups water
4 cups sugar .52
2 T. molasses .10
1 1/2 tsp. maple flavoring .18
Total Cost: $.80
This fills up a quart-size bottle. The bottles that I’ve bought at my discount grocer usually cost $.99.
Edited: I forgot to mention that I guessed at the cost of the maple flavoring. My current bottle came from Walmart, but I don’t have an exact price for it. I figure I paid about $2.00 for 2 oz. of flavoring.
