Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

by Mama Chocolate on March 9, 2012

Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

sent in for Fun with Food Friday by Caroline A., recipe originally from Creations by Kara

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a large saucepan, bring buttermilk, sugars, and butter to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk  in soda and vanilla.

It is very important to use a large saucepan, as the syrup will bubble up a lot when you add the baking soda. As it cools, the bubbles go away.


I am not usually a big caramel fan, but I loved this syrup! It was especially awesome paired with the Oatmeal Pancakes I’ve been making (which I promise to share soon!)

It is pretty sweet so you don’t need a whole lot, and it was pretty thin, so this recipe is going to go far! (Unless you like to drown your pancakes in syrup…)

As the original recipes, suggests, you can use this on pancakes, waffles, German (or Dutch!) pancakes,  and even ice cream!

Thank you for sending this in, Caroline!

Of course I like to drown my pancakes in syrup! :D And with buttermilk caramel syrup, I already know I would be using a lot of it. This would be so good with bananas on the pancakes too. Yum!
