“This is great on pancakes, bread pudding...I think I'm just beginning to discover its many uses. Honestly, it tastes soooo good, I often end of licking the spoon (and the pan) after I make it! :) Don't be weirded out by the buttermilk--you wouldn't even know it was there unless someone told you. I often halve it if I don't want to make a lot, and it also keeps in the fridge in an airtight container for several days.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring butter, sugar, buttermilk, vanilla extract, corn syrup, and cinnamon to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once simmering, whisk in baking soda, and cook for 10 seconds before removing from heat. Serve warm. After adding the baking soda this looks quite frothy--but after you take it off the heat, keep whisking, and then let it sit for a minute, then whisk it again, and it will become the right consistency.
