What is Brown Sugar Syrup?

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s take a moment to talk about what brown sugar syrup is. As the name suggests, it’s a syrup made with brown sugar, water, and sometimes other ingredients such as vanilla or cinnamon. The brown sugar gives the syrup its distinctive flavor and color, which is deeper and richer than regular sugar syrup. Brown sugar syrup is easy to make and can be used in many different ways, making it a versatile addition to your pantry.


To make brown sugar syrup, you’ll need just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


Now, let’s get down to business! Here’s how to make brown sugar syrup:

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the brown sugar and water.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, raise the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and let the syrup simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. If you want to add vanilla extract, do so now and stir it in.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the syrup cool down to room temperature.
  7. Pour the syrup into a glass jar or bottle and store it in the fridge.


Now that you know how to make brown sugar syrup, here are some tips to help you get the best results:

  1. Use a good quality brown sugar for the best flavor. Dark brown sugar will give you a deeper, richer syrup than light brown sugar.
  2. If you want a thicker syrup, let it simmer for a few more minutes until it reaches your desired consistency.
  3. You can add other flavors to your syrup, such as cinnamon or ginger, to give it a spicy kick.
  4. Make sure to store your syrup in an airtight container in the fridge, where it will keep for up to a month.
  5. If your syrup gets too thick in the fridge, you can thin it out by microwaving it for a few seconds or by adding a little water and heating it on the stove.
