Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup

Ready in 45 minutes

An easy to make, rich syrup with a light caramel flavor. Great for serving over pancakes, waffles, french toast, spice cake, ice cream, or whatnot.

"Yes! turned out excellent! I have recipe that is real similar. Same ingredients, slightly different amounts. My recipe calls for a little more vanilla & a little less corn syrup. I like the more corn syrup but might add a little more vanilla next time. Yum! "

Preparation

Combine buttermilk, butter, sugar, corn syrup and baking soda in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium heat. Stirring continuously, cook until the sugar dissolves and mixture foams to a boil. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture begin to take on a golden amber color, about 7 to 8 minutes. (The mixture will froth and foam, double in volume, and then gradually subside.) Remove from heat, stir down and add vanilla. Mix until all foam and bubbles disappear. Transfer to a heatproof container and let cool. Serve warm. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, reheat before using.

Note: Do not leave syrup unattended while boiling. Keep whisk in pot and stir frequently.

The poster did not joke about needing a large pan to cook this recipe as it triples in volume. This is a very delicious syrup in which the sweetness of the caramel flavor is perfectly balanced by the tang of the buttermilk.

Yes! turned out excellent! I have recipe that is real similar. Same ingredients, slightly different amounts. My recipe calls for a little more vanilla & a little less corn syrup. I like the more corn syrup but might add a little more vanilla next time. Yum!
