Buttermilk Syrup


*gluten-free *soy-free *nut-free *oat-free *egg-free


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (store bought or make your own)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


  1. Combine butter, sugar, and buttermilk in a large saucepan.
  2. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and mixture comes to a gentle simmer.
  3. Reduce heat so it is barely at a simmer, and continue to cook until it is slightly thickened and syrupy.
  4. When you are ready to serve, remove from heat and add baking soda while stirring. Mixture will bubble up quite a bit, which is why you use a large pan.
  5. Stir well and add the vanilla.
