You are going to want to pour this cinnamon syrup on everything! It’s that good!!
This cinnamon syrup is a Wilkes family favorite and tradition. Although it is definitely a holiday favorite, we make it all year round. We love it on pancakes, waffles, french toast, ice cream. You name it! Make this syrup! Your family will thank you and me!!
Every year we host a Neighborhood Breakfast with Santa. For years we use to take our kids downtown to “Breakfast with Santa” at Meier & Frank, a breakfast held in their beautiful Victorian Restaurant complete with pancakes and sausage, a musical show put on by Beaverton High School and of course a visit from Santa. Then one year the kids got a little too old, so we started a new tradition! We held our own Breakfast with Santa at our house and invited our younger neighborhood kids and their families.
And always on the menu, next to all of the other delicious breakfast foods like buttermilk pancakes, sausage, fruit, and hot chocolate, is this delicious cinnamon syrup. After breakfast, each family constructed a gingerbread house. And of course there is a visit from Santa with gifts for all the kids. I think this is one of my favorite holiday activities. We love our neighbors and spending this relaxing time with them during the hustle of the holidays is such a nice break.
This cinnamon syrup recipe is perfect over pancakes or waffles and anything else you can think to try it over!
