  • “We couldn’t believe how good this syrup was!! Put it over waffles and scraped the plates clean! Thanks for a great recipe. Will have this one a lot.”

  • “I fell in love with buttermilk syrup after tasting some at the local farmers’ market, but alas the merchant disappeared and I was never able to buy it again.So I am thrilled to find this recipe, which tastes just like the stuff I got addicted to!Thank you!”

  • “This syrup is divine!I had some buttermilk to use up, and found this great recipe. What a pleasing and rich taste.I first used it on pancakes, and later used it on apple slices.Thanks so much for sharing this keeper!”

  • “This was Awesome!!!My wife and kids loved it.thanks for sharing.”

  • “I thought this was very very good but rich.Only a small amount was needed.Thanks for posting!”

  • “Liked by all. Very good!”

  • “Never would have believed it but this is yummy!Also tried the recommendation to mix with peanut butter for an apple dip – YUM.What a surprise – will always help use up my extra buttermilk now!”

  • “So good! Beware of eating it straight from the jar with a spoon!”

  • “great recipe.be sure to remember your 7th grade science class (buttermilk is an acid and baking soda is a base).The first time I made this, I added the baking soda in at the end and I ended up with syrup all over my stove :)”

  • “Awesome syrup which I’ve made several times now.The first my syrup came out a dark golden and at 7 minutes cook time was so thick we spooned it on.The second time I cooked for only five minutes and it truly was a nice, light golden syrup; as suggested I served with recipe#61108.”

  • “This syrup is absolutely delicious! I fixed it for my family of 7 plus 2 guests and we ate it over French Toast for dinner. We all ended up dipping our bacon and eggs in it too! It was that yummy! I will be making this a permanent part of my recipe collection. I suggest using a large pan, like a soup pot or something, because it foamed up very high and spilled over the sides. I just kept stirring and turned the heat low enough to keep it boiling, (but not boiling over) and it turned out perfectly. You won’t regret making this syrup!!! “

  • “Just made this recipe with Meghann’s fantastic fluffy pancakerecipe. YUM YUM YUM! Now, this is the only topping that I will use with pancakes, buttery deeeeeelicious, Thank you for a wonderful recipe Laura, certainlya keeper for me.”

  • “I really enjoyed this, it’s like eating caramel syrup. My mom decided that she wanted it on ice cream more than pancakes though. Make sure you use a BIG pan when cooking it even though it doesn’t seem like there’s a lot. It foams up A LOT and I had to hold it off the heat so it wouldn’t spill over. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “After cooking for 57 years, this would be included in my top ten favorite recipes. It is truly luscious! Thanks, Laura.”

  • “Yum! So good! Rich caramel-flavored sauce that’s perfect with pancakes or whatever else you could think of. Thanks for sharing the recipe! UPDATE: I’ve been making this for a couple of years and the family loves it. Fills a pint jar to the top with a couple of tablespoons left over. Try with good quality vanilla ice cream and some cashews. Absolutley to die for! Don’t save this for breakfast, it’s a fantastic dessert sauce, too!”

  • “I have made this several times in the past and every time I get rave reviews from those who try it.I guarantee it’s a delicious topping for pancakes, french toast and waffles!”

  • “this was so good!I have made it twice.Next time I am going to try half splenda.It would be good for a dip for apples too.”

  • “INCREDIBLE!! I’ve searched and searched for a syrup recipe just like this one. It tastes just like a restaurant’s “vanilla syrup” that I loved back home. It was so easy to make! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. Thanks for sharing!”

  • “I modified this and made a sugarfree version. It was wonderful! We have beenon the South Beach eating plan and made this to pour over the oatmeal-buttermilk pancakes. It is a weekend treat that we look forward to.”
