If we had to pick a favourite ingredient, maple syrup might just make the cut. We love the haunting sweetness of this natural syrup—subtle but powerful—and its charming versatility. We find ourselves adding maple syrup to just about anything and smiling at the results. We’ll take maple syrup any which way but here are a few of our most beloved uses…

We recommend looking for recipes that call for maple syrup already, so as to avoid any need for complicated ingredient re-adjustment. Try Maple Cake with Maple Syrup Frosting.
