This quick and simple Brown Sugar Syrup will make your breakfast extra sweet and attract all the good things into your life. Use common ingredients to simmer up a sweet topping for pancakes or waffles. It's gonna be awesome.
The best days are ones that start with a lazy morning where you get to indulge in a big breakfast. A little something savoury, a little something sweet, a hot cup of tea, and sunshine streaming through the window. Nowhere else to go, nothing else to do. You eat and smile and laugh and talk with people you love for as long as you like. And then when it's over, you can just go back to bed and read a book if you want. Definitely the best.
Sadly, days like these seem to come around less and less frequently as time passes. But the only way to get them is to make time for them. Be intentional about seeking joy. Have fun on purpose. Book in time to take it easy if you need to. We all need to recharge, and we shouldn't let anything get in the way of that.
What makes Brown Sugar Syrup so awesome?
This Brown Sugar Syrup is great for a couple of reasons. First off, it's delicious. It sort of tastes like the inside of a cinnamon roll (you could definitely add some cinnamon to enhance that). It's somehow both dark and bright at the same time. It's got depth from the brown sugar but also a punch of acid from orange juice. This syrup is definitely more than just sweet.
It's also great for when you're all ready to make pancakes, waffles, or French toast and you realize you don't have any syrup. We usually have orange juice in the house, and everything else is a pantry staple, so I can leave this to simmer on the stove while I get on with the rest of breakfast. Then it seems like I went to a lot of trouble to make homemade syrup when really I'm just covering up for being forgetful. No one needs to know.
Magical Properties of Brown Sugar
According to Lunar Grove, brown sugar can help to transform enemies into friends. It has an energy of sweetness, comfort, and love. As with anything sweet, brown sugar can help with any attraction spells you might be working. To me, brown sugar has an earthier quality than white sugar, so maybe call on it when you want to attract something gentle and sensual.

Tips for making Brown Sugar Syrup
This is a simple dump, stir, and simmer situation. Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan, whisk them together, and just let them simmer for 5-10 minutes. My only tip is to just make sure you don't let it boil for too long or else it will get too hot and become thick and stiff. You can always thin it out with a bit of water.
You can pour this over a stack of pancakes, a waffle, French toast, or any other place where you'd use maple syrup. I think this might also be awesome stirred into iced tea. I'm not a coffee drinker, but you could try it in your latte as well.
Make breakfast time truly awesome. Add a bit of Brown Sugar Syrup for a sweet morning to remember.
