Can Pancake Syrup Be Used Instead Of Maple Syrup

I don’t recommend using pancake syrup instead of maple syrup because they both are two different things. Each has its own taste so for maple flavor you must use maple syrup.

Storing Of Maple Cupcakes

You can store the cupcakes in the refrigerator for two days but do remember they only taste good enough when they are made. If you want to store it for a longer period of time you can freeze them in an airtight container.
