Good afternoon guys! I hope everyone is having a great week. Today I am going to show you how unbelievably easy it is to make a simple syrup recipe of your very own at home! I was discussing post ideas with my fiance and he suggested that I post some really basic recipes for you guys so that you will always have a basis to go back to. I want to help you guys be better bakers and you cannot really advance in your craft if you haven’t mastered the basic recipes in the first place right?
So this will be a pretty quick post and not very exciting but necessary none the less! Today we are going to be making a simple syrup recipe that I have used for years. I use simple syrup literally every day. I use it to sweeten my coffee, to moisten my cakes between layers… you can use it for anything that needs sweetening really! I think it is so funny when I find this stuff bottled sitting on a shelf in my local Sprouts or liquor store because it is literally the easiest thing to make. Must make the easiest product to produce as well because it literally uses just sugar and water.
Of course, you can create different flavors of simple syrup but the basic recipe is just sugar and water. I will go ahead and list i below and let me know if you have any questions. If you have any suggestions for basic pastry recipes you are wanting to see on the blog, make sure to leave it in the comments so I can add it to my list of post ideas! *Affiliate links may be present in this post*

- 1 Cup Sugar Any kind
- 1 Cup Water
- Splash of Vanilla
- This recipe is literally the simplest thing that you can make when you are starting down your pastry path. All you have to do to make simple syrup is place your sugar and water in a pot over high heat and bring to a boil. I let my simple syrup cool off before I pour it into a squeeze bottle but that is it! I will sometimes add a splash of vanilla extract or even maybe soak some mint leaves in the syrup before straining them out to give it a minty flavor. Syrup should keep in the fridge for at least 1 month.
