I don't like to use corn syrup in my recipes. Lyle's Golden Syrup is what I use. Yes, Lyle's Syrup doesn't cook the same as corn syrup and you have to learn to cook at tad differently when using Lyle's.

I found a recipe for Buttermilk Syrup on the net and this is the recipe was inspired by it.

How to Make Buttermilk Syrup


  • 1I've used tons of different extract flavors and they all are wonderful with the Buttermilk. I have used the flavored oils too instead of the extracts...from Cinnamon to Lavender.

    In your large pot with high sides, add the butter, sugar, buttermilk and Lyle's Golden Syrup.
  • 2Bring to a boil and stir constantly for about 2 to 3 minutes. Till the sugar has totally desolved and everything is well incorporated.
  • 3Add the baking soda (it's going to rise till probably more then double) This is why you need a large deep pot!

    Add the extract or flavored oils of your choice. Stir well over heat.
  • 4Remove for heat and once in while stir until cooled and thickened. Serve over pancakes, waffles, french toast, ice cream, cake, pie, puddings or any dessert.

    One day I am going to try using garlic oil and making a garlic syrup to pour over vegetables and/or meat. I think a Lemon buttermilk Syrup would be delightful over chicken or fish too. And just imagine how a garlic buttermilk syrup would be over meatballs or pork.

    I will tell you it's wonderful over fruit dumplings and fritters....
