What do you use coffee-infused maple syrup for? You drizzle it over your pancakes or waffles, of course! This can be a fun departure from your everyday maple syrup. But if you've had coffee-infused maple syrup over pancakes a few times and are now looking to get more creative, you may want to try one of the following ideas, too.
Make a Latte
Lattes are traditionally made with coffee and milk. You can make your own, sweet, unique version using coffee-infused maple syrup. To make a single latte, you'll need:
- 1 shot of espresso
- 4 ounces milk
- 2 tablespoons coffee-infused maple syrup
Pour the milk into a saucepan, and heat it gently. You don't want it to start simmering as this can cause the milk to separate. When the milk is warm, transfer it to a mug. Add the espresso and coffee-infused maple syrup, and stir to combine. Sip, and enjoy.
Drizzle it Over Ice Cream
Coffee-infused maple syrup also makes a great ice cream topping. It's a bit more creative than the fudge or caramel you're probably used to using! Try it over some high-quality, vanilla bean ice cream, or even over some chocolate ice cream. Add a dollop of whipped cream and some pecans, and you have an all-out sundae. If you have a coffee lover in your life, making sundaes with coffee-infused maple syrup together may be a good way to socialize.
Brownies are delicious on their own, but if you swirl them with coffee-infused maple syrup, they are out of this world. You can use your favorite brownie mix for this purpose. Mix it up according to package instructions, and then pour it into the pan. Next, take about 1/4 cup of coffee-infused maple syrup, and drizzle it over the brownie batter. Swirl it into the batter with a butter knife. Then, bake the brownies according to the instructions on the package.
Top Your Toast
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to make your toast more interesting, just drizzle some coffee-infused maple syrup over it. This is particularly delicious if you butter the toast before drizzling on the syrup. It adds a bit of sweetness and pairs nicely with a mug of your favorite coffee.
Coffee-infused maple syrup is a wonderful, versatile product to keep on hand. In addition to serving it over pancakes and waffles, you can use it in all the ways above. Contact a specialty foods supplier such as Summit Maple Farm to learn more.
