  • 1/2 cup butter one stick
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract


  • Add butter, sugars, milk, and honey to a 2.5-quart saucepan (see note).
  • Bring to a rolling boil (see note) and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Off heat, add baking soda and maple extract.
  • Whisk to mix together, the syrup will bubble and foam vigorously.
  • Let rest for a few minutes to let the foam settle down.
  • Serve warm or cold.
  • Store in an airtight container (like a mason jar) in the fridge, reheating and stirring before use to melt and combine.


A 2.5 quart saucepan is the smallest size you will want to use for this recipe. It will bubble and foam up quite a bit once the baking soda is added.
A rolling boil is a boil that does not break even when you stir the liquid. It will take about 5 minutes to get the mixture to a rolling boil. I set a timer for the 2 minute boil step.
