Anyway, so I still had about a cup of mango syrup which I put in the fridge. Since my 12-year-old daughter would be home earlier than usual so she could return to school on time for “class night”, I thought I’d surprise her with pancakes with mango syrup. But she was too excited with her “class night” to be interested in food. My husband ate her share of the pancakes. When I suggested adding a scoop of ice cream to make it pancakes a la mode, all he said was go get the ice cream then!To make the mango syrup, stir together 3 tbsps. of thick mango jam with 6 tbsps. of light pancake syrup in a small saucepan. Blend well with a wire whisk. Place over medium-low heat and cook, stirring often. Add water, a tablespoonful at a time, stirring as you add. Keep adding water until the desired consistency is reached. As with gravy, some like it thicker while others like it runny.
Note that the syrup with thicken as it cools.
Pour the syrup warm or cold over freshly cooked pancakes. It goes well with butter or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
