Serving Ideas for Sugarbush Run Maple Syrup

Guidelines and suggestions for cooking with Sugarbush Run Maple Syrup 

Maple syrup can be used as a substitute for corn syrup, molasses and honey (liquid sweeteners) or as a substitute for granulated white or brown sugar (dry sweeteners).

  • for 1 cup granulated sugar use ¾ - 1 ¼ cup maple syrup (syrup is less sweet than granulated, more syrup may be needed).

  • decrease liquids by 2 – 4 tablespoons for every one cup of syrup that you use (syrup has more moisture than solid granulated sugar).

  • add ¼ - ½ teaspoons baking soda (syrup has a slight acid and soda will neutralize it.  Not needed in recipes using buttermilk, sour milk, or sour  cream).

  •  decrease oven temperature by 25 degrees (maple tends to caramelize and burn on the top and edges more quickly).

  •  melt or measure butter in cup before measuring syrup (syrup will then easily slide out).

  •  use darker syrup to provide a heartier and stronger maple taste.
