Turn pancakes guest-worthy by making your own topping. Here are six ideas that go beyond the usual maple syrup.
1. Fruit syrups and compotes
If you’re going to dump liquid sugar over your pancakes, it might as well have some antioxidants, right? Try making your own syrups with apricots, blueberries, cranberries or oranges.
2. Infused honey
Sure, you can drizzle any old honey over pancakes, but lavender-and-rose infused honey makes them extra special. (While you’re at it, swirl some of the honey into your tea.)
