At our brunch a few weeks ago my 3 year old went crazy over this strawberry syrup. We made her a stack of strawberry shortcake pancakes with this scrumptious syrup drizzled over. It was so good the family called for an encore, resulting in an awesome pancake Sunday the next day.
Well, as we enjoyed this Homemade Strawberry Syrup so much that we found ways to use it, like on the Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu. Although I must say eating it off a spoon is perfectly delicious.
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
