Buttermilk Syrup

There is no question as to what my favorite meals are. I have a serious love hate relationship with sugar. Therefore my two favorite meals are breakfast and dessert (yes dessert is a meal just in case you didn't know that).  Years ago I went to this local restaurant that serves delicious breakfast. They have this amazing syrup that I fell in love with instantly. I knew that I needed to figure out how to make it. After searching the web and combining recipes this is what I have come up with.



Buttermilk Syrup

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter
1 cup corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla (optional)

In a very large saucepan stir together all the ingredients except baking soda. Bring to a boil. Add Baking soda and cook for 7 minutes. Once the baking soda is added the syrup will foam up quite a bit so make sure you are using a very large saucepan. Remove from heat and serve.

  2. Wow... sounds downright decadent!
    I'm a die-hard maple syrup girl (as are most Canadians, obviously), but this looks so tempting that I might just have to make a batch the next time I'm in a pancakey kind of mood. I bet the buttermilk gives it a really nice tangy edge.

  4. Oh man! I'm so glad someone else has enjoyed this as much as I have! It it is seriously the most delicious thing on earth. I just love it's warm buttery caramel flavor with just a tiny bit of tang from the buttermilk.

  7. I love that you made your own syrup. I have no doubt that it's better than anything storebought. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your syrup up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/06/sweets-for-saturday-21.html

  8. It looks so smooth and caramel-y. This would be so good with French Toast and biscuits too.

  11. I'm on my second batch of this syrup and I want to eat pancakes every morning so that I can use this. It is incredible. And stores well, I just heat the glass container in a bowl of hot water and then it's easy to pour. Thanks so much!
