This isn't anything more than maple syrup and butter melted together, but it's a favorite when we're making 'stacked pancakes'. Inspired by Wilder's 'Farmer Boy', I layer piping hot, 3-inch pancakes with warm buttery maple syrup until they tower tall, then serve them to the kids. Nothing makes them happier. It's also a great way to stretch maple syrup.

In a small pot, whisk maple syrup and water together and warm over a burner.
When syrup is hot, whisk in butter all at once.
Continue stirring over medium low heat until butter is melted and syrup is hot. Pour into pitcher and serve, or make stacked pancakes.
