Buttermilk Syrup Recipe Ingredients

I have to warn you, this is SWEEEEEET. Cooking it on the stove gives it an almost caramel like quality.

  • Granulated Sugar
  • Buttermilk
  • Corn Syrup
  • Vanilla Extract

You will want to store it in the fridge which will eventually force it to become super thick. If that happens, toss it into the microwave for five to ten seconds and it will return to the original liquid state.

Just a little hint, I cut back on the sugar in my waffles if I am topping with this goodness. They are the perfect pair.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Whisk the sugar, buttermilk, and corn syrup in the bottom of a medium sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil, mixing minimally.
  3. Cook for 7 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the vanilla extract.
