Homemade Vanilla Syrup

When I made the French Toast Muffins I knew they would be even better with some syrup on top but leave it to me to not have any in the house. So I looked up a simple recipe and tweaked it a bit. For me it was super sweet and came out really thick so when the syrup was done in addition to adding the vanilla extract I also added an additional 1/4 of water and it did the trick, it wasn’t too thick or too sweet. Just perfect.
