  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Add all ingredients together in a large pot on top of the stove except vanilla. Bring to boiling. Do not take your eyes off this as it will triple in size and boil over. Boil about five to six minutes until starts to thicken. Remove from stove and stir in vanilla.
  • (Note: If mixture starts to boil over remove from heat and stir down). This syrup will harden as it cools. Once refrigerated it will harden but can be put in microwave for a few minutes and will return to liquid. This syrup is great on all pancakes, ice cream or cakes. Keeps well in fridge.
