All syrups are not created equal and this easy buttermilk syrup will change. your. life. (Especially when paired with homemade Belgian waffles.) Trust me, all other syrups will be ruined for you once you try this one because it really is the best buttermilk syrup recipe I’ve tried.
There is a restaurant near where I live called Kneaders. If you know what I’m talking about, you know they have great food, delicious desserts and amazing all you can eat french toast breakfast on Saturdays. Their french toast is served with fresh fruit, whipped cream and warm buttermilk syrup that will literally have you scraping your plate clean. And while I’m not claiming to have the exact recipe, it’s got to be pretty darn close and anyone whose ever tried it agrees with me.
A couple of weeks ago I shared my recipe for the BEST Belgian Waffles. They are made with yeast and left to rise before cooking and they really are so amazing. So make those and then make this syrup to go on top. We make these waffles and this syrup every year on Christmas Eve morning with my husband’s family and everyone always ooh’s and aah’s over it because it’s just that good.
So let me show you how to make it. Here’s what you’ll need:
The number of ingredients is a little deceiving but sometimes the best things in life are the simplest, am I right? *wink*
First, you’ll need to grab a medium saucepan. Add the sugar, buttermilk and butter.
Bring to a boil and immediately remove from the heat.
Add in vanilla and baking soda and stir like crazy. The baking soda is going to make the syrup foam and rise very quickly which is why it’s important to have a bigger saucepan than you think you’ll need. Keep stirring until the foam starts going back down.
