chef brad’s buttermilk syrup

You all know I’m a pancake lover.  We make this pancake recipe more than any other recipe.  It is THE Saturday morning, got it going on, gonna love ya forever, pancake recipe.

I love my pancakes with whipped cream, fresh strawberries and warm coconut syrup.  I’m a little high maintenance that way. (I don’t do a lot of things the high maintenance way, but the ones I do, I really do, because I REALLY love them!)

But my pancake toppings of choice may have changed this morning.  Or at the very least, now have a serious rival contender…

Thermador‘s Chef Brad shared this insanely delicious recipe with us…

Buttermilk Syrup

“This is a perfect syrup, don’t be fooled by the buttermilk.  It totally changes after cooking”


1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons baking soda


In a large pan (make sure it is large, this syrup will grow when you add the vanilla and soda), place the butter, buttermilk, and sugar.  Bring to a boil stirring.  remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and soda.  it will foam.  Now it is ready to serve. Yum Yum.

*** I’m going to double check to see if this can be cut in half, which I’m sure it can, since, well, this would make A LOT of syrup…but then again, it’s so good, you might just need that much!

Thank you for sharing Chef Brad and Thermador!!

  1. Oh your world will change! You find it in the bar section of your grocery store, or liquer store if your in a dry county somewhere. It is sold in a can and used for Pina Coladas etc. Just pour it into a pot or small sauceoan and heat for a few minutes. it turns a beautiful clear color and tastes like Heaven on pancakes and waffles (with a little whipped cream and berries of course!) I may even have a photo of the can in the Pancake Recipe link above….
