Buttermilk syrup is a rich and creamy sauce for all your favorite breakfast treats.
Servings: 12(2 tablespoon) servings
1cuplight brown sugar
Combine the brown sugar and buttermilk in a medium-size saucepan over high heat. Whisk or stir to combine and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low or medium-low and simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup has thickened.
Add the butter and stir to melt. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla and baking soda. Whisk or stir well to combine. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
The syrup will foam and become quite thick and frothy the longer it simmers. If you prefer it without the foam, remove from the heat as soon as it thickens before it has a chance to foam or make it ahead of time and allow it to settle before serving. For what it's worth, we like the foam and it doesn't bother us a bit.
