Its the most wonderful time of the year for one really important reason. And then there’s food. The holidays are a time to go all out and make those recipes you’ve always wanted to make for friends and family. The time to actually make breakfast like Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast, Cheesy Breakfast Pot Pie with Gouda Biscuit Crust, Apple Pie Pancake Bowls, Angel Food Cake French Toast with Cream Cheese and Strawberry Syrup and introducing Cranberry Pecan Gingerbread Waffles with Easy Orange Syrup.
Well, today is part 1 of the introductions. Today I bring you Easy Orange Syrup because this drink worthy syrup deserves its very own post.
When I started thinking about what would compliment my Cranberry Pecan Gingerbread Waffles perfectly, I knew it was going to by Orange Syrup. And this Orange Syrup does not disappoint. Truth be told, I tried a few versions of Orange Syurp before I tried this one from Martha Stewart, and although I usually can never leave a recipe alone, this Easy Orange Syrup is an exception. It is so perfect in its simplicity and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand. All you need is sugar, water, orange juice, butter and 10 minutes. Or just be around for 10 minutes to stir occasionally. I wasn’t exaggerating when I said this was easy!
This Orange Syrup tastes exactly like it sounds – sweet, silky orange syrup – the perfect amount of citrus, the perfect amount of sugar and the perfect kiss of butter. At the same time, this Orange Syrup tastes better than it sounds. I honestly was expecting to like this syrup but I love this syrup.
It is crazy yummy on pancakes, French toast, waffles and particularly these Cranberry Pecan Gingerbread Waffles. Get your syrup ready because these waffles are coming on Tuesday.
Just try not to drink all the Orange Syrup before then.
Whisk together the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and cornstarch then whisk into sugar/water. Simmer gently until thickened, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, then stir in butter until it melts. Best served warm.
