Yield 2 cups


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Melt the butter, sugar, and buttermilk in a medium saucepan until the butter is melted. The mixture will boil up high so you need a pan with room for it to do this. Next, bring the mixture to a boil and boil for one minute. 

  2. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and baking soda. The mixture will foam! Serve warm on pancakes or waffles.
