Make your favorite breakfast pancakes or waffles and top them with this simple cinnamon roll syrup that makes things taste just like a cinnamon roll!

You can have a fantastic waffle. However, the way you top that waffle can make the difference from a great waffle to a phenomenal waffle. This cinnamon roll syrup recipe I have for you today will do just that.

I have a recipe already for cinnamon syrup and a way to make cinnamon roll waffles, but this syrup is still different from both of those and possibly my favorite now.

When I made this for my family, they were all amazed at how it tasted just like a cinnamon roll! This stuff is amazing and highly addictive. I could eat this stuff by the spoonful! It’s similar to my favorite buttermilk syrup. However, it has a higher amount of vanilla and includes the addition of cinnamon.

You melt some butter in a large saucepan.  Then whisk in the sugar, buttermilk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Bring the whole thing to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 2 minutes while whisking constantly. Then you add in some baking soda and whisk for about 30 seconds. Then this syrup is ready to enjoy.
