14 Delicious Ways to Use Pancake Syrup in Recipes

I absolutely love syrup. Pancakes and waffles are always a hit in our house and, oh, spreading on some butter and drizzling some nice, warm syrup over the top is one of the best ways to make your breakfast an inviting breakFEAST. Since syrup is, well, amazing, I decided to share a list of breakfast recipes with pancake syrup.
As a participant of the Hungry Jack Ambassador program, I’ve received compensation for my time and product samples for review purposes. Opinions are my own. We love syrup and I am excited to share these delicious breakFEAST recipes with syrup.

In this house, we enjoy serving Hungry Jack pancake syrup in their convenient microwavable bottles that are specifically designed to fit in the microwave. They are so easy to heat up and the easy pour cap makes it possible to add the perfect mess-free drizzle to any dish, and the handle makes it easy to grip the bottle and not get sticky fingers.

While we typically only use pancake syrup for our pancakes and waffles, there are so many ways Hungry Jack pancake syrup can upgrade breakfast to breakFEAST for the whole family. I asked some other bloggers for their favorite recipes to make with pancake syrup in addition to the ways we use ours.

Breakfast Recipes Made with Pancake Syrup


In Oatmeal

My husband holds a special place for warm pancake syrup. When I was talking to him about this post the other day, he relayed a childhood memory and I had to share. He remembers they had delicious breakfast dishes often and he always loved having some warm, sweet pancake syrup added to his plain oatmeal for a yummy maple flavor.

Try adding in some diced apples and walnuts, maybe even some chia seeds or quinoa.

In Coffee

Instead of adding sugar or flavored coffee syrups to your morning cup of joe, try adding a drizzle of Hungry Jack pancake syrup for sweetness and flavor.


In Butter

Whip some Hungry Jack pancake syrup into butter for a delicious, spreadable topping.


On Sausage

Maple-flavored sausage links are a favorite of mine. Whether you’re having a breakfast patty or sausage links, add a little pancake syrup to make them breakFEAST worthy.


On Pancakes and Waffles

This one is pretty obvious, but we absolutely love serving our waffles and pancakes with Hungry Jack pancake syrup. They are an essential part of any breakFEAST. A fun way to serve your pancakes is to add some crumbled up bacon and drizzle syrup over the top. Maple bacon pancakes (see them in my Farmhouse Breakfast Party post.). Yum!

We love making Hungry Jack waffles in our Oster® DuraCeramic™ Stainless Steel Flip Waffle Maker (it is awesome–no need to use non-stick spray!). Then we heat up some Hungry Jack syrup in the microwave and drizzle it over all over the waffles, filling up the handy little syrup compartments.

Drizzled On Fruit

Add a little pancake syrup to fruit and you can even add a little melted chocolate–YUM! Bananas, strawberries, and pineapple are delicious for this.

  1. What neat ideas! I’m most intrigued by adding it to coffee. That actually sounds tasty! I’ll have to try it. 🙂

  2. I love syrup too but have only ever used it on pancakes/waffles/French toast. These are some really great ways to use it that I would have never thought to.

  3. I would think any recipe that would use honey could substitute syrup.

  4. Besides pancakes, we use syrup with French toast. Yummy!
