Maple Berry Syrup—The perfect topping for buckwheat pancakes


1 cup berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
1 cup water
1/2 cup maple syrup


  • In a small pot, add berries and 1 cup of the water. Crush the berries with a potato masher and bring to a gentle boil. Cook until about half of the liquid evaporates.
  • Add the maple syrup and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Strain if you want, but I just pour it all over the pancakes.
