Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 people


  • 1/2 cup Butter salted
  • 1 cup Sugar white granulated
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk Cultured
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


  • In a large saucepan, (use a large one because the mixture is going to more than double.) on medium heat, combine the butter, buttermilk, sugar. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes or just until the mixture starts to turn a caramelly brown color. 
  • Stir in the baking soda and vanilla and stir until combined.  Take the syrup off the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
