Basic Pancakes, fluffy and light but its the maple syrup that is the star. I like to mix Lyle's golden syrup with Grade B maple syrup, add butter and bourbon and serve hot over the pancakes. —sdebrango

Ladle some batter into the pan (you know so they look like pancakes) flip with spatula when you notice bubbles start to form.

I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking, I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando. I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.

Oh yum. I love the grade B maple. Another good time to visit would be during maple season. We could do the rounds of the local sugar shacks to enjoy a seasonal breakfast out in the field! It is great fun.

Maple season is whenever the sap starts to flow for however long the weather supports...usually March here...when we have lengthening days with full sun and cold snappy nights the sap seems to flow best.
