How do you like your pancakes? Plain or drizzled with a lil' som som extra on it? For me, just the mention of pancakes gets me thinking of ways to add a little oomph to it. The first oomph that comes to mind is syrup...yes i've got a sweet tooth like that. I also know it's a favourite amongst kids and adults alike. Naija style pancakes don't need any form of syrup whatsoever but when making the classic pancakes you've got to step up your game a little especially if you've got a 5 year old cousin who calls you his sugar peeneenee like i do...lol! Without further ado, here's an easy pancake syrup you could make at the comfort of your home. This is definitely bound to give aunty jemima a run for her money ;).
