Heavenly Buttermilk Syrup
The Husband and our youngest son both say they like it more than maple syrup! Our oldest and I really love it; but I still love maple syrup. I think this is a great syrup for making a regular breakfast extra special! And Jade; well she ate and ate and ate and said, “YUM” the entire time. I’d say it has her stamp of approval! This buttermilk syrup has been compared to drizzling Carmel over hot breakfast goodness.
So let’s get on with the recipe! You won’t believe how easy it is to make your very own Homemade buttermilk Syrup!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- In a saucepan, combine butter, sugar and vanilla; melt over low heat.
- Stir often and do not let mixture boil.
- When melted, add buttermilk and cook for one minute.
- Remove pan from heat and cool for 2 to 5 minutes.
- Add baking soda and whisk thoroughly.
- Serve warm
In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients except the baking soda and buttermilk. Melt over a low heat. Make sure to stir often as you don’t want it to burn.
Then add the buttermilk and continue heating for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 2-5 minutes. Then add the baking soda and whisk thoroughly. It will foam a bit so don’t let that worry you. It is just a natural chemical reaction to adding baking soda. HA! Get the kids involved and teach them science while you make this heavenly caramel type Buttermilk syrup!
Once it is well mixed pour into your favorite syrup bottle and serve! It is best served fresh and warm. It makes approximately 1 cup.
Just image all the ways you can enjoy this buttermilk syrup! Drizzle it’s goodness on buttermilk pancakes, Mini German Pancakes, french toast, chocolate chip pancakes, waffles, and chocolate peanut butter pancakes!
Goodness, you can even use it to drizzle over ice cream once cooled, or a little drizzle in some fresh yogurt. Use it to sweeten some tart fruit.
The options are endless! Although you will want to really enjoy it the day you make it as sadly it doesn’t store well and isn’t as good the next day. Though if your family is anything like my family that won’t be a problem because their won’t be any left overs to try to store!
