Buttermilk Syrup

Buttermilk Syrup


A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to possibly the most amazing syrup I had ever tasted! I thought it was probably some insanely complicated recipe that I wouldn’t ever figure out. That was until I learned that it literally took 5 minutes, and only had a couple of ingredients! Here is our delicious Buttermilk Syrup recipe. You don’t even need pancakes for this stuff, I could really just drink it straight from the bottle! Enjoy!

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine butter, sugar, and buttermilk and bring to a boil. Once it's at a complete boil, let it boil for 1 minute. Take off heat and whisk in baking soda and vanilla. It will foam up during the boiling, and especially when other ingredients are added. Serve with your favorite pancakes or waffles. Best served warm.

  1. I take it back...after doing some research, it appears that, when cooked longer, it essentially turns into caramel sauce. If you cook it for a shorter period, finishing while it's still pale in color, then it is a buttery syrup that's popular on pancakes. So it's preference/usage that should affect length of cooking.

    I added a pinch of salt to cut the sweetness. Also a dusting of cinnamon. OMG. My question is how long will it keep in the fridge? The buttermilk was close to use by date. And we don't eat much sweet, so it might stay in fridge for a while.
