Homemade Buttermilk Syrup

Looking for a simple syrup to pour over pancakes and waffles? This homemade buttermilk syrup is sure to hit the spot. This recipe is really simple to make. I get it started on the stove and it's ready to serve by the time I have my pancakes or waffles made.


1In a large saucepan heat butter, milk, and sugar over medium heat.


Bring to a boil and boil for 5-8 minutes, stirring often. The syrup should be a light golden yellow and slightly thicker.


Remove from heat and whisk in soda and vanilla. The mixture will get big and foamy. The foam will go down as it cools and when you pour it, it will also thicken when it cools.


Serve hot over your favorite homemade waffles or pancakes.


Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving again.
