After my review on Chia seeds from GoIndiaOrganic for plattershare's Associate program, posting an interesting snack for kids using Maple Syrup. According to Wikipedia, Maple syrup is a syrup made from xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple or black maple trees. Maple syrup is often eaten with pancakes, french toast, waffles etc. In addition, this can also be substituted with honey while preparing grilled meat or chicken recipes. The one which i received for review from GoindiaOrganic is Coombs Family Farms's Organic Maple Syrup. It's a grade A dark coloured syrup with a robust taste.
The first taste of this syrup flashed out my memories of hongkong and seychelles. It tasted exactly the same with perfect level of sweetness and richness . This product has a superior quality with light and clear texture. Received this maple bottle without any damage and really appreciate the packaging of the product.The taste of the maple syrup is also not overbearing which can also be used in both cooking and baking purpose. Using this yummy ingredient, tried kids friendly snack Cake balls / Cake paniyaram which was a super hit among family members. The snack tasted heavenly when I dunked the balls in maple syrup.
Maple syrup cake balls is a easy and tasty snack prepared using maple syrup which is used as sweetener along with a tablespoon of brown syrup. According to the given quantity, this has a mild sweet taste, so adjust the quantity of maple syrup or brown sugar to one's taste bud.
