Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup
Whether or not you are the type to head straight to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte at the first sign of cooler weather, we highly recommend you try this homemade version. We may be biased, but we think our recipe beats the coffee shop version, hands down.
This Pumpkin Spice Syrup, made with pumpkin puree, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spices, is super simple to put together. It can be used as a pumpkin coffee syrup in coffee and tea, as a breakfast syrup, or splashed into your favorite fall cocktail. You can make your own homemade pumpkin spice mix, but buying the premixed one will save you some time. We also recommend using canned pumpkin puree - it’s quicker and honestly tastes more like the pumpkin spice latte syrup you are probably used to.
How to Use Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- Serve over pancakes, waffles or French toast.
- Use as a sweetener for coffee and tea.
- Add to cocktails.
- Spoon over vanilla ice cream.
- Stir into your oatmeal.
- Drizzle over goat cheese.
Ingredients in Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- Pumpkin Puree - we recommend using canned pumpkin puree rather than making your own.
- Brown Sugar - adds a molasses flavor to the syrup.
- Karo Syrup - you can also substitute corn syrup.
- Butter - we prefer unsalted butter in this recipe.
- Cinnamon - we like our Pumpkin Spice Syrup with extra cinnamon. Any ground cinnamon will work great.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - this spice mix contains cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice. You can find it just about anywhere that you buy your spices.
- Cloves - if you use whole cloves, be sure and strain your syrup after you cook it.
- Vanilla Extract - pure vanilla extract tastes best.
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- Boil ingredients. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, Karo syrup, butter and water. Whisk well, then add the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cloves and whisk again. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil, then continue to boil for 2 minutes while stirring frequently.
- Add vanilla. After 2 minutes, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
- Cool and serve. Allow to cool for at least 5-10 minutes, then serve on your favorite waffles, pancakes or french toast. Enjoy!
Storing Pumpkin Spice Syrup
- Refrigerator: Cool completely, then store in an airtight container or glass jar in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
