Brandy Simple Syrup

Simple Syrup is brushed on cakes for added moisture and flavor. This one can be flavored with brandy or rum.


2 cups (24 servings)


2 cups water
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cup brandy


In a saucepan, combine water, sugar and lemon zest. Bring mixture to a boil and continue boiling for 5 minutes. Strain into a sealable container, removing the lemon zest. Allow to cool, then cover and store in refrigerator.

When ready to use, mix in brandy. Brush onto cake layers before frosting.
