3 Ingredient Homemade Strawberry Syrup is a luscious fresh strawberry sauce ready in just 15 minutes! This is the perfect simple recipe to get your taste buds talking this summer.
Strawberry season is upon us and as I find myself making batch after batch of jams and sauces I knew I had to share this recipe with you. My favorite memory with this syrup goes back a few years...
At a blogger brunch we hosted a few years back we set up a fantastic pancake bar. There were tons of topping options and several recipe suggestions. One of the most popular recipes was the Very Berry Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes. Everyone loved all of the combinations, but my then 3 year old (now 5) went absolutely crazy over this strawberry syrup.
We made her a stack of strawberry shortcake pancakes with this scrumptious syrup drizzled over them. A simplified version of the very decadent pancakes previously mentioned. You may have caught that photo on Instagram
It was so good the family called for an encore, resulting in an awesome pancake Sunday the very next day and pretty much every Sunday for the next 2 months.
Well, as we all loved this homemade strawberry syrup so much, we found ourselves using on everything and creating recipes with it like this Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu. Although I must say eating it off a spoon is perfectly delicious.
No matter how you eat it, you are going to fall in love with this summertime staple.
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
