Ridiculously delicious and incredibly simple to make, this Buttermilk Syrup will rock your world and become your new favorite syrup of choice!
Oh my heck! I think SLACKER is the only word that comes to my mind right now! I’m sorry it been so long since I’ve posted a recipe. I really don’t even have a good excuse other than sheer laziness. I’ve just been busy enjoying the holidays, consuming way too much food, and hosting dinner party after dinner party.
I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and enjoyed lots of family, food and fun. Now it’s time for me to seriously get my act together and start sharing some yummy food with you.
It dawned on me the other day that I’ve never shared this amazing buttermilk syrup with you. This stuff is amazing! My mom made it years ago while we were at their cabin one weekend. We’ve been hooked ever since. My boys may or may not lick their plates when enjoying this over pancakes, waffles or french toast. They’ve become very spoiled when it comes to syrup. This syrup trumps all others, sorry Mrs. Butterworth’s, but you’ve been demoted at our house.Whatever you make this to serve over, it will definitely be the star of the show. New Year’s Day sounds like the perfect excuse to make this.
Happy New Year! Be Safe!Print
Make sure you use a medium to large size saucepan for this syrup. Once you take it off the heat and add the vanilla and baking soda it will foam up and almost triple in size.
For some variation, try adding a teaspoon of coconut extract in place of the vanilla. It’s amazing!
- 1 stick butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a medium/large saucepan combine butter, sugar and buttermilk, bring to a boil, stirring often.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and baking soda until well-combined. (Mixture will become very foamy and triple in size, so make sure your pan is large enough).
- Serve warm over pancakes, french toast, waffles, french toast casserole, etc.

12.30.2016 Looks interesting. How long can it be stored in the frig?
This can be stored in the fridge for about 7-10 days. Just reheat it before using. It won’t be foamy, but will still taste amazing.
I was looking for a way to use up some leftover buttermilk and saw this recipe. Oh my gosh. It was heavenly. Thank you.
Hi Nancy! I’m so glad you found this recipe and made it. You’re absolutely right about it being heavenly. We have a hard time even using regular syrup anymore. Buttermilk syrup all the way at our house! Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed this.
