INGREDIENTS FOR BUTTERMILK SYRUP RECIPE
I love that buttermilk syrup only takes a few ingredients! It's easy to whip up in the morning when everyone is so hungry and ready to devour breakfast.
- Baking Soda
HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK SYRUP
In a tall sauce pan add all ingredients- except baking soda and vanilla. Keep it on low until the butter has melted, then turn the heat up until it starts to simmer.
Once it is starting to simmer add soda and vanilla.
It will foam up realllllly high! Make sure you are using a large pan or tall pan to accommodate the foam.
Bring it to a boil and let boil for 1 minute. Then remove from heat. Foam will dissipate, and you'll have a creamy caramel colored delicious buttermilk syrup. It's THAT easy!
HOW DO GIVE BUTTERMILK SYRUP A CARAMEL FLAVOR
To ensure the buttermilk syrup has nice buttery caramel flavor make sure you boil it for one minute. For a deeper thicker richer caramel syrup boil it for 2 minutes.
Boiling it longer will bring the sugar to a high temp caramelizing the syrup more. If you boil it too long it will become very thick and can even burn.
