There are many ways cook with maple - from spreads to flakes, spirits to sugar.

Don’t believe us? We’ve been cooking some beauties with Canada’s favourite ingredient to see what all the fuss is about. Here are five ways you can use maple syrup in sweet and savoury snacks and meals - thanks to Maple from Canada

Sweet pancakes

Let’s talk about pancakes, since the majority of us will think of them first when maple syrup is mentioned.

Pancake day may have been and gone, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still enjoy them once in a while. Ok, quite a lot - after all, pancakes are for every day, right?

Although there’s nothing wrong with indulging in a sweet treat, for those health conscious amongst us that would prefer to use substitutes, maple syrup is the one.

It’s got significantly less sugar in than honey does, which makes it such a popular topping.

Savoury pancakes

Although sweet pancakes are to die for, not all of us are satisfying the same craving. If savoury pancakes are more your thing, here’s one for you.

How does this sound - sweet potato pancakes with maple syrup and glazed salmon? The ultimate pancake.
