We have some great cooks in our family.
We like to try new recipes and tweak the old ones.
We're always asking each other, "Can I have your recipe?"
So we created a place to share the recipes that others ask for, the experiments that turn out well or the recipes that we fall back on because they're quick and yummy. Some of these recipes are original, some are gleaned from friends and some are blatantly copied from other sources.
All of them have been tested and found delicious.

Buttermilk Syrup

Stir 1/2 cup or more of this delicious syrup into Perfect Cupcake Frosting, drizzle (or pour) it over ice cream or use it for any recipe that calls for caramel sauce.  It's scrumptious!

(print this recipe)

3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup real butter
2 T. corn syrup
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla

Combine buttermilk, sugar, butter, corn syrup and baking soda in a large pot (use at least a 3 1/2 qt. saucepan or it will boil all over your stove). 
Bring the ingredients to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat to low but make sure the mixture continues to bubble.  Cook, stirring frequently, for 8 - 9 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn't boil over!

When it's done it should be a luscious golden-brown color.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.
There will be foam on top; it tastes fine but it's not very pretty.  You can skim it off the top, or just stir it in.
Let cool to room temperature.
