Vanilla simple syrup is exactly like the name sounds. Simple to make with a vanilla sweet taste. The syrup ingredients start with a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. Then, the water and sugar are combined, brought to a boil, and cooled for use. The best part is next when you add the vanilla!

I like to use vanilla simple syrup in my coffee drinks like caramel macchiatos, and for soaking my cakes before filling or frosting. 



  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water.

    Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.

    Allow to cool.

  2. Add vanilla and stir until incorporated.


Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or your favorite flavoring to spice things up!
