Let me just start by saying the title of this recipe: Hot–Buttermilk–Syrup! Just typing it out and I start wanting blueberry pancakes or french toast slathered in it with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. This recipe is not good for you. Which is probably why it is so delicious. But it is syrup. I mean, the main ingredient in syrup is sugar, am I right? That is why Elf loves it so much! I think this syrup would get Buddy the Elf’s stamp of approval. It is pretty much good on anything: waffles, French toast, or pancakes of all kinds. If you are feeling adventurous, try it on spaghetti (no guarantees).
It is a thick and creamy syrup that consists of butter, sugar, and buttermilk. It is really great with fresh fruit and whipped cream too. Have you ever been to Kneaders? It is my mom’s copy cat of their syrup recipe. And it is mmmm…. mmmm…. good! We had it for our Christmas Eve brunch, and everyone was licking their fingers!

It stores well in the fridge, so I like to make it and keep a bottle in the fridge to use for breakfast for the whole month. It probably lasts even longer than a month, but let’s stick with the month mark to be on the safe side. Your welcome!
My son asked for blueberry pancakes, and I was working, so I did not want to make them, but then I thought…. “hmm, I could make that hot buttermilk syrup to go over them” and guess what? Well, the pictures are the evidence of how quickly I gave in to his request and served up Blueberry Pancakes.
If you love breakfast food, or pancakes, try this syrup. It is great over Whole Wheat Pancakes or my personal favorite Citrus Ricotta Pancakes, but I am going to let you in on a little secret, it is even good over from the boxed-mix pancakes. That is what is pictured above, a mix with some blueberries stirred in. I am all about the Eazy Peazy, and today I splurged time on the syrup and made the pancakes quick! Do what works for you! Don’t they just look so delicious?
