Buttermilk Syrup is a treat I love to make for my kids on special days. Holiday’s like Valentine’s, Easter (dye it green for St. Patty’s Day) You name it, this buttermilk syrup will start the day off with a bang. But, of course, you don’t just need to save it for holidays. If you have some buttermilk lying around in a carton with no specific uses in mind- use it up by making the syrup.
Buttermilk syrup has a creamy, caramel flavor. Save it in an air tight bottle for weeks in the fridge!
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp vanilla
- Bring these butter, buttermilk and sugar to a boil in a large pot. It will bubble up a lot so make sure to use a large stock pot.
- Once bubbling add soda and vanilla. It will foam up high. Continue stirring for 30 sec.- 1 minutes. Take off heat. Let cool and foam will dissolve. Serve immediately over pancakes, french toast waffles, dutch pancakes, crepes or whatever is your favorite!
- Store in airtight container, and re-heat before use.
