Amazing homemade buttermilk syrup that will make breakfast 100% better.
Ready to take your breakfast up to a whole new level? Homemade Buttermilk Syrup is the most delicious syrup that’s perfect for all your favorite breakfast foods pancakes, waffles, and french toast.
Don’t let the “buttermilk” word scare you away. I was nervous to try this too, but let me just tell you that once you try it, you will always want this at the table. The syrup is buttery and sweet with a taste that is just so pleasant. In fact, my family calls this syrup “Preview to Paradise” because it’s just that delicious.
Drizzle this homemade syrup over your pancakes and top with fresh fruit for brunch that is restaurant worthy.
Don’t let another breakfast go by without this goodness.
HOW TO MAKE BUTTERMILK SYRUP
This syrup is not hard to make. Combine buttermilk (or substitute- see note below), sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a medium to large sauce pan. Bring this mixture to a boil on medium to high heat. Once boiling, set the timer for 5 minutes and stir frequently to prevent burning.
Once the timer goes off, remove the pan from the stove and stir in baking soda. This will make the syrup foam up, creating the most light and perfect texture syrup to pour on your breakfast.
This recipe doubles well which makes it a great option when you need to feed a crowd.
And if you are done with breakfast and you still have leftover syrup, simply put it in a glass jar with lid and store in the refrigerator up to one month. When you are ready to use again, remove the lid and heat the syrup.
If you don’t have buttermilk in the fridge, don’t worry. You can still make this syrup using an easy buttermilk substitute.
To make your own, simply combine 1 cup milk with 1 Tablespoon white vinegar. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes. Once it is thick and slightly bubbly, it’s ready to use.
