This syrup was so easy to make, and it tastes fantastic. This recipe is a keeper. I did have to change pans after adding the baking soda to make room for the syrup to expand. It is definitely worth dirtying the extra pan!

I made this when we ran out of maple syrup. So glad I used my large sauce pan, as it foams up quickly when you add the vanilla and baking soda. We have used it on pancakes, pumpkin waffles and buttermilk waffles. It was delicious on all of them.

What an excellent syrup to serve with waffles. I used Ratherbeswimmin' Grandma's Buttermilk Waffles and they were a match definately made in heaven!! I never have Karo syrup on hand, so I used 1st Grade Maple Syrup. My only caution would be is that once the syrup has bee made, it retains it's heat, so either make it up ahead of time or let it cool down somewhat before serving. I normally don't rate recipes when I don't have all the ingredients, but this was way to good to let it pass! As much as I love my maple syrup....this buttermilk syrup just got top billing! Thank you, so much for a wonderful recipe!!

yum, yum, yum, yum, yum....This is by far my favorite syrup. It is a guilty pleasure. I first tasted buttermilk syrup at a street fair where somebody was selling some. Of course I had to buy it and a day later when it was all gone I decided to check and see if I could find a recipe so that I could have it any time I wanted. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

This was extra fizzy but did settle down. This is a tasty syrup and I served it on the Pumpkin Waffles. I served it with the cinnamon shaker and had some of the syrup with the cinnamon and some without. They were both good! I will use this recipe again! Thanks!
