It's hard to imagine doing anything else with maple syrup aside from drowning our pancakes, French toast and waffles in the sweet, sticky stuff. Syrup goes so perfectly with our favorite decadent breakfast foods that it's easy to believe that's all it can do. But, obviously, this is not the case. Maple syrup can be used as a sweetener in pretty much any situation.

Native New Englanders will proudly boast their use of syrup in their coffee in place of sugar. The syrup can be turned into addictive candies, and it's also a natural in baked goods. These 25 recipes are proof of that.

So put down the sugar and give maple syrup a chance -- you'll be deliciously rewarded.
