Buttermilk Syrup is your pancake’s new best friend! It’s easy to make with a rich and caramel like flavor!
Hi there! I’m Liz from Liz on Call. A creative lifestyle blog where you can find simple crafts, recipes, gift and party ideas and lots of free printables. I’m super excited to be part of the Real Housemoms team and even more excited that I get to share one of our favorite family recipes as my first post.
A few years ago my family was introduced to buttermilk syrup. We had it with our pancakes one time and since then, it is a staple in our breakfast food menu. We can not have pancakes or waffles without buttermilk syrup.
Buttermilk syrup is rich and tastes almost like caramel. That is probably why I love it so much! We have ditched the usual maple syrup for this delicious syrupy goodness.
- 1 cube 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- In a sauce pan with sides, cook together butter, sugar and buttermilk
- Stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved and everything is mixed together
- Bring to a boil
- Stirring consistently, boil for 1 minute (it will look foamy)
- Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda
- Keep stirring as it foams up and mix everything together
This is a great recipe to add to your next brunch or if you are planning a special breakfast for Mother’s Day!
It really is so quick to make and your family will thank you and request to have it the next time you make pancakes or waffles. I like to make a double batch and then I keep left overs in the fridge and just warm it up when we want to use it. It should keep well in the fridge for about 3 weeks.
You could also impress mom or your brunch guests with some tea and crumpets. Have you ever had a crumpet? Another one of my other favorite brunch recipes is this sunshine berry spritzer. It’s non-alcoholic so even your littlest guests will love it!
