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!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
