  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat sugar, buttermilk, and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until mixture starts to boil, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir baking soda and vanilla into buttermilk mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Make sure your pan is big enough as the syrup will foam up. Also, make sure you make this right before you plan on serving it because the foam will slowly disappear and that is the best part of the syrup.

I love this recipe. I also add 2 tbls of karo syrup. Yum! I don't like maple syrup so I make this one or cinnamon syrup for my family. It's great on pancakes, waffles or french toast.
