Buttermilk Syrup

09 Sep



I love this syrup so much. I have used it for years.  Last night I was whipping up a little breakfast dinner to give Jace and Dave while they watched Utah State beat Utah.  What a game. I could not find my recipe book so I googled the recipe.  This is just a little different than my original recipe and I think I like it better.  It is a little darker and richer.  I will post both of them and you can be the judge. I will never go back to store bought syrup again.  This makes everything you put it on taste so much better–even a spoon.  It is fast and amazing.  Prepare to fall in love.

New Favorite Buttermilk Syrup


  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, buttermilk, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda. Bring to a boil, and cook for 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla.




1 1/2 cups butter

2 1/4 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

3 tsp vanilla

3 tsp baking soda

Melt butter and then add the sugar and buttermilk.  When it starts to boil, turn down and simmer for 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla.  Serve warm.  May keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 week.

This seems like almost the exact same recipe, but for some reason it turns out much lighter in color and taste.  Try them both and prepare to see Elvis!!!

I made this syrup last year for Christmas and put it in these very cute jars;  I used the swing top bottles from Specialty Bottles.  Then I had labels printed with


Merry Christmas

The Hill Family

They turned out so cute. I have ordered several different bottles from this company and have been very pleased with all of them.  Last year I made dipping sauce and used a bottle with a screw on lid and ordered thier plastic lid covers.  You just slip them over the lid and then use a blowdryer to shrink the plastic.  Makes for a very professional looking bottle.  The only problem is that they look so nice, no one believes you made them.
