Because I love you guys I'm gonna share this recipe with you. This is a family recipe for Vanilla Syrup. We seriously have this stuff on tap at my house. It is my
husbands absolute favorite. Once you try this you won't ever settle for that "other stuff" unless you have to! Ok, maybe you will have to have maple syrup every once and awhile just to remind yourself what you are not missing out on.
(drum roll please)
1/2 c. real butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter in microwave. Add sugar and buttermilk. Heat another 45 seconds until sugar dissolves. Add baking soda. Heat 15 seconds. Stir (it will foam). Add Vanilla. Serve hot.
You can serve on waffles, pancakes, german pancakes or french toast!
Money saving tip: Buttermilk can be expensive and sometimes hard to find so here is a tip. For every cup of buttermilk you need take a cup of regular milk and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or another acid like vinegar). Stir the lemon juice into the milk and let it sit on the counter for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
