Dutch Honey Syrup

Dutch Honey Syrup is a family tradition on my maternal side. An easy homemade syrup recipe, I’m not even sure why it is called Dutch Honey. It contains no honey, but maybe it is Amish or Dutch in heritage?

The only thing I can tell you with 100% certainty is that you and your family will soon start to crave it. It is that good.

Although my mother made Dutch honey, it is most memorable from visiting my Aunt Pam in the Colorado Rockies. She has a house in Grand Lake, one of the entrances to Rocky Mountain National Park, on the opposite end of Estes Park.

Summer in the mountains is full of crisp mornings, sweatshirt-wearing nights and perfectly humid-free days with a maximum temperature of 85. Sounds like a dream, right?

Grand Lake, Colorado

Grand Lake has a long history with Indian tribes, violent wars and ghost stories. There are also celebrity homes lining the massively deep glacier lake, many of which are only accessible by boat or snowmobile in the winter months.

Even with all of the history and adventure surrounding us, I look forward to breakfast the most.

We can always be guaranteed Chile Relleno Casserole, Dutch Honey (Homemade Syrup) and breakfast burritos, usually served on our day of departure. This is a homemade syrup without maple flavor and while it also is a syrup without brown sugar, it does have a hefty dose of white sugar.

Dutch Honey Syrup is also known as blonde butter syrup, vanilla butter syrup, cream syrup and sometimes just vanilla syrup. To me, it will always be Dutch Honey.

Full disclosure, you can ask me for nutritional information, but I have none and quite frankly I’m just going to tell you: you don’t want to know.

Just enjoy it and have a giant salad for lunch. (Update: the nutritional info is now posted, but I recommend to not look at it, ha!)

It is a great homemade syrup for pancakes, waffles, biscuits and more. We even eat it with dessert, like on top of vanilla ice cream or brownies. Dutch Honey is also freezable in airtight containers.

Combine with fresh fruits or use any extract in place of vanilla to give it your own edge. One of my favorites is Homemade Blueberry Syrup.

Tools for making Dutch Honey Homemade Syrup:

Heavy Bottom Sauce Pan– this will be one of your most used kitchen tools. Having something that is heavy bottom will distribute heat better and prevent burning whether you are using an electric or gas range.

Wooden Spoons– for sticky sauces, wooden spoons work best, but they tend to splinter and split, so I order them in bulk and just toss them when they start to get gross.

Sammie

This looks delicious although I was a bit surprised when I saw it was free from honey. Pinned ready to make thanks for sharing.

    You know Sammie, I have no idea why it is called Dutch Honey with no honey! As a passed down, family recipe, this is just always what we called it 🙂

What is table cream?

    Jen L

    I also would like to know what is considered ‘table cream’?

      Savory Experiments

      Just regular cream (not heavy whipping cream). Like the kind you would put into coffee.

Hank tou for the recipe. My husband and I went to an Amish auction this past weekend and the jars of this were selling for 15$ a jar. I can’t wait to try this out. Off to the store in the morning.

    Really? $15, huh? Maybe I should start bottling it, lol. I hope it tastes the same, it surely is addictive!

Since your aunt is my Mother. Love You cuz. Thought you might like another idea for this recipe. When I introduced this recipe to My mother-in-law a long time cook on the 6666 Ranch in Texas, She decided to put it on cake. Make a cake (usually white or yellow) and poke holes in it (while still warm) and pour this over it. No need to frost. This has become a favorite of my husbands family.

    OMG- Danielle- that sounds amazing! I usually make poke cake with cake mix and pudding, but Dutch Honey sounds just decadent!

    If you like poke cake try my Oreo Puddin’ Cake!
