Heavenly Buttermilk Syrup

My mom has been raving about Buttermilk syrup for a little while now.  So one night when my daughter wanted to make breakfast for dinner, I decided that it was the perfect time to try it out. Oh WOW!! It is AMAZING!!  It is truly a "died and gone to heaven moment".  The whole family LOVED it!!  I would recommend making it beforehand, but it was still heavenly!!  It would be great over pancakes, waffles or ice cream.  I am thinking it would be delicious over a warm blondie. 

Heavenly Buttermilk Syrup
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 cup buttermilk*
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
In a large saucepan mix all ingredients except for the baking soda and bring to a slow boil.  Boil for 1 minute and remove from heat.  Add soda and stir.  Mixture will foam a lot, so make sure you use a large pot. I didn't and made a HUGE mess!! Allow to sit for about five minutes for the foaming to go down.  Serve or pour mixture in a container and refrigerate.  It separates a bit, just stir and reheat when ready to serve. *I have had to makes myself stop eating spoon fulls right out of the fridge.
*I normally do not buy buttermilk, so I did not have any on hand.  Fortunately, I found a substitute that worked perfectly.
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice.
Stir together and let sit for 5 minutes before using.
Enjoy this decadent syrup!!


  1. This sounds wonderful. I don't think I have ever heard of it before. Nice photography.


  2. That would go perfectly over our tiganites. They are the Greek equivalent to pancakes. Delicious!

  3. My grandkids would LOVE this on waffles!

  4. Good morning Tiffanee and it would be a better morning if I had some of that syrup -- I have had a version of this before and it is rather intoxicating! Joni

  5. yum, this sounds great! I used to make a Caramel Icing for my Banana Cake that called for using buttermilk. It was very good, so I can just imagine what this tastes like!

  6. It certainly sounds yummy!
