What’s in Buttermilk Syrup?
- ½ Cup Butter
- 2 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
Optional Flavorings: Use 1 teaspoon extract
- Maple Extract
- Rum Extract

How to Make Buttermilk Syrup
- In a large saucepan, combine your butter, sugar, and buttermilk. Stir constantly.
- Bring the pot to a rolling boil for 1 whole minute.
- Remove the pan from the heat.
- Add in the baking soda and then stir. The syrup will foam. This is why you need to use a large pot (so it doesn’t boil over).
- Optional, add in 1 teaspoon of your flavoring of choice.
- Allow the syrup to cool slightly.
- The foam will settle as the syrup cools.
- Serve warm over food of choice.
How do I store Buttermilk Syrup?
Store Buttermilk Syrup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I recommend storing it in a resealable mason jar because it’s airtight and convenient. You can easily pour, scoop, and reseal with a mason jar.
How to reheat Buttermilk Syrup?
Pour or scoop some syrup into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15-20 seconds. Stir and then serve. It doesn’t take long to heat and doing it this way keeps you from reheating an entire batch.
How do you make Buttermilk from Regular Milk?
If you don’t have buttermilk and would like to use regular milk, make your own DIY buttermilk. By using 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice, you can make a substitute. Just let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before using. The results won’t be exact, but they’ll be close!
How to make Thick Syrup?
To make a thicker syrup, simply let it boil longer. The longer your buttermilk syrup cooks, the thicker it will become. Just make sure not to let it boil too long or else it will burn or turn hard.
What to serve with Buttermilk Syrup
Truly the possibilities are endless but let me share with you a few that we enjoy. Of course Pancakes are a perfect choice. We love making Fluffy Pancakes or a package mix will also due. German Pancakes are also delicious and let's not forget about French Toast. So many options to try and enjoy.
Now that you know how simple this Syrup Recipe is, go make some memories with those you love and make sure to take a photo and share with me! I'd love to see those smiles.

My grandkids call this pancake gravy. Besides pancakes they love it on scrambled eggs, dip sausage in it, even drizzled on hash browns! A must for big family breakfasts. Glad to find a homemade recipe instead of Prepared Pantry. Thank you!!!
Love this! Thanks for sharing
