If you can't make it to a cabane à sucre, fear not, we've got seven ways to get your morning maple fix.
Rye Pancakes with Apple-Maple Compote
Rye flour give these pancakes a hearty texture and nutty flavor that's complimented by a sweet apple-maple compote. A comforting breakfast for a chilly day.
Toasted Oatmeal with Maple Syrup, Cranberries, and Raspberries
Toasting your oats bring a nutty flavor to this hearty, just-sweet-enough breakfast. It's vegan to boot.
Maple Glazed Cinnamon Buns
Just what you want on a cold winter morning: big, fluffy cinnamon buns brushed with a sweet maple glaze.
Maple Cake with Brown Butter Apples
The flavors of deep, toasty, caramel melt into tart green apples that are sautéed in brown butter, sugar, and syrup then perched on top of moist, buttery, and maple-laden cake.
Blueberry Rhubarb Jam with Maple Syrup
Thick, silky, and speckled with tiny chunks of blueberries, this jam has a pronounced maple flavor and is lightly scented with star anise, cinnamon, and vanilla. It would be perfect between layers of French toast, but also try it with buttery scones or cinnamon streusel muffins, or swirl it into oatmeal.
Bacon-Banana Waffle Sandwich with Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup
Maple and bacon are a natural match, and so are bananas and peanut butter--why not them bring them all together? This decadent sandwich is fun for brunch or dessert, and probably wouldn't suffer from a scoop of ice cream on top if you're feeling especially indulgent.
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple Roast Rhubarb
Tart roasted rhubarb compote is a lovely alternative to pure maple syrup. Whole wheat flour with a little roughly ground oats thrown in make fluffy, tasty pancakes, and a relatively healthy way to fuel a day.
