Cinnamon Simple Syrup




About: Instructables Community Manager - I am powered by sugar and rainbows! For realz!
Simple Syrup is really handy to have around. Since it is winter, and it is nice to be able to sweeten hot beverages, I decided to make a cinnamon simple syrup for something a little different.

  • 1 Cinnamon Stick (add more for a stronger flavor)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar

  • Add all ingredients to a sauce pan and cook to a boil.
  • Let it simmer for 10 minutes or so.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • Store with Cinnamon stick if you desire.

    I'm not sure if it would be good on waffles since it's thin, and simple syrup is meant to not really be thick like actual syrup. You could keep cooking it, I'm not positive it would work, but it's worth a shot :)

    Sounds Delicious:)

    Also tried it with vanilla and star anise. The vanilla syrup was just sweet, but the star anise was delicious! I'm putting that in my warm milk from now on :)

    This would be great to use in cocktails too! I make a spicy cinnamon syrup by melting 'Red Hot' cinnamon candies in the simple syrup! I love it! Great idea Penolopy!

    Why brown sugar? (I only ask because I don't really like the taste of molasses.)

    I just liked the idea of it having a darker color and a different flavor. You can totally use regular sugar! It will just be lighter and not taste molassesy :)
