  • 2 cups regular brown sugar or (2 cups of dark brown sugar for a richer flavor)

  • 1/4 cup corn syrup

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • Stir as your mixture grows. Do not let it boil over!
  • Cook 1 minute. Keep stirring!
  • Remove from heat and continue stirring until your syrup stops trying to grow out of the pan. Let it sit. Time to start the waffles!
