Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

Okay, if you long-time readers think you may be experiencing a little deja vu, that’s because you are! I posted this recipe last year not too long after we started our blog. As we continue to bribe gain new readers, we want to highlight some of our favorite recipes from days gone by, especially when they’re updated with new photos!

You’re probably gagging just a little as you read this. Hear me out. I had this syrup at a bed and breakfast once and promptly came home to recreate it.  This is pure evil and so incredibly delicious that you’ll never go back to Aunt Jemima. I suppose that’s not an entirely fair comparison because this is caramel, not maple. But after this, you’ll say, “Maple WHAT, now?”

You can put this on pancakes, waffles, French toast, ice cream, or eat it with a spoon. Admit it. You know you’ll do it.

Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

3/4 c. buttermilk
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 stick real butter
2 Tbsp. corn syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine buttermilk, sugar, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda in a LARGE pot. Like one you’d make soup in. Yes, you’ll have way more pot than ingredients (and I’m not referring to the green leafy stuff), but this will boil all over your newly-cleaned stove if you put it in a smaller saucepan.


Bring ingredients to a boil and reduce heat to low (as long as it’s still bubbling, you’re okay). Cook, stirring very frequently, for 8-9 minutes. You’re basically making candy here and candy-making requires constant vigilance.

When it’s done, it should take on this luscious golden-brown color. Remove from heat and add vanilla.


There will be foam on top. It tastes just as good, but it’s not super pretty. If you’re into aesthetics, you can skim it off; otherwise, just give it a good stir.

Now eat it however you darn well please.

And this ain’t just for breakfast, folks. Try it on ice cream over a chocolate waffle!
