A new jack version of a classic syrup sandwich.
I can’t listen to Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” with reminiscing about the younger days of enjoying a nice syrup sandwich. I’m talking white bread saturated with sweet syrup for lunch, breakfast, or anytime tide me over. Sometimes it was all you were gonna eat that day.
What Is In The Sandwich?
It literally is what it is - bread and syrup. In this case my homemade syrup. The syrup consists of:
- Brown Sugar
- Ground Cinnamon
- Ancho Chili Powder (optional)
How To Make A Syrup Sandwich
Ain’t nothing to it but to assemble the sandwich. The actual syrup is easy to make and brings so much flavor to a plain classic version. Plus it contains no artificial ingredients.
I prefer my syrup sandwich hot. After adding the syrup to the bread, I finish the sandwich in a waffle maker. This is kind of like a panini. No sweat if you don’t have a waffle maker you can heat in a cast-iron skillet or use your broiler.
Tips For Making Syrup Sandwiches
- Feel free to substitute your favorite bread. Brioche, challah, whole wheat, etc. all work well
- Make enough syrup to use on other foods like French toast, pancakes, churros, etc.
- If you've never had a syrup sandwich enjoy with your favorite store-bought syrup
