Buttermilk Syrup

Fall has finally arrived here.  It's been raining a bit and the air is turning colder.  That means more time indoors and more time for family breakfast on the weekends. 

One of our favorite Saturday morning breakfasts is waffles.  But, who am I kidding?  I pretty much love waffles all of the time.  I'm not a giant fan of maple syrup though.  Typically I put peanut butter and a tiny bit of maple syrup on my pancakes and waffles.  Which is ok.  But I wanted something different. 

In searching through some old recipe books and came across this recipe for Buttermilk Syrup.  It is delicious.  Light, buttery, and foamy.  Yeah, foamy, like it froths up when you mix in the baking soda and it is so good.  Hope you all enjoy.

Buttermilk Syrup
1 c buttermilk
1 c sugar
1 cube butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

In a  medium saucepan, bring buttermilk, sugar and butter to boil.  Boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda.  The syrup will bubble up so allow room in pan.  Serve warm over pancakes, french toast, crepes, or waffles.  Store leftover syrup in fridge.
