The warmth of cinnamon all bottled up!  Cinnamon syrup has so many uses. From October to March, we make at least one batch a month. Top pancakes or stir into a chai tea latte. It also makes a great homemade gift for the foodies in your life.

American Cinnamon Syrup for Pancakes, Porridge & more

Cinnamon Syrup is delicious on porridge or stirred into hot milk and tea for an easy chai latte. You can also use cinnamon syrup to flavour this cranberry & orange holiday punch. We adore this on top Las Vegas Carrot Cake Pancakes which are part of our annual Pancake Day feast.

In pretty Kilner bottles, cinnamon syrup makes a brilliant homemade gift. Make sure that your bottles have been sterilised. Add a ribbon and a personalised recipe card and you are good to go!
