I found a recipe for Buttermilk Syrup on the net and this is the recipe was inspired by it.
1/2 csweet or salted butter
1/2 cbuttermilk ( like using organic or homemade)
1 - 1 1/2 Tbsplyle's golden syrup
1 tspbaking soda
1 tsppure vanilla extract or maple extract or any flavored extract or flavored oil.
How to Make Buttermilk Syrup
- I'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.
- Bring to a boil and stir constantly for about 2 to 3 minutes. Till the sugar has totally desolved and everything is well incorporated.
- Add 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.
- Remove 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....
