I have been on the hunt for the perfect buttermilk syrup. I have made versions in the past but my family just didn’t like them, that is up until now.
Today, I am sharing what I have found to be the perfect buttermilk syrup. It is excellent to serve on the quick buttermilk waffles that I shared with you yesterday. My middle son is now officially addicted to this syrup.
It really is amazing on just about any breakfast item that requires syrup. I like it because it isn’t as sweet as regular syrup.
Again, you can use a buttermilk substitute for this but it just isn’t the same as using the real stuff. So, splurge and by the real stuff when making this. You won’t be disappointed.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 Tbsp corn syrup
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- In a saucepan, add the sugar, buttermilk, butter, and corn syrup to a boil.
- Allow to boil for 6 minutes while stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Be careful because the baking soda will cause the mixture to bubble up. Stir until combined.
- Allow to cool to warm and serve over french toast, waffles, or pancakes.
