The Baker Upstairs: buttermilk syrup


buttermilk syrup


If you're a fan of deliciousness, this buttermilk syrup is for you! It's made with just a few simple ingredients and is completely heavenly. We love to pour it over homemade pancakes, aebleskivers, belgian waffles, and baked french toast, but it would also be delicious over warm apple pie or vanilla ice cream. It's rich and warm and buttery and full of flavor! Definitely a must-try recipe. Enjoy!
Buttermilk Syrup

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter (2 sticks), cut into pieces
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine the sugar, butter, buttermilk, and corn syrup in a large heavy pan. Stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Cook 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Continuing stirring until the soda is completely dissolved. (Be careful - if your pan isn't large enough it could boil over after you add the baking soda!) Refrigerate any leftover syrup and reheat in the microwave.
