Buttercream Syrup

Here's another delicious and unique pancake syrup. We've been having cranberry syrup almost every time we have pancakes, ever since Jeff came up with it. I still love it, but I was starting to get cranberry-ed out. Time to try something new!

I came across this recipe for Buttercream Syrup a while back, and thought that it looked absolutely delicious. After all, a recipe with nothing but butter, sugar, evaporated milk, and a bit of vanilla has to be good, right? So when Jeff made chocolate chip pancakes this morning, I knew it was the perfect time to try it out.

I admit that my pictures of this are not nearly as lovely as the pictures on Jamie's post with the original recipe. But I was in a hurry to get the picture-taking over with, and dig in!


Buttercream Syrup
1 stick butter (1/2 C)
1 cup sugar
1/2-3/4 can evaporated milk (can be substituted with buttermilk for a different, yet yummy taste)
1 tsp vanilla

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add the sugar slowly and stirring until it is creamy and thick.

Add the milk a little at a time while stirring. Add the vanilla and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes while it thickens further.


Rich? Check. Buttery? Check. Delicious? Check. Diet? .... Not so much. :-)

See, and I just ran out of maple syrup. From the store... gasp! (I know.... I know...) And I wanted french toast this morning too. Pity my sad little smoothie has filled me up, but maybe I shall make some of this and stick it in the fridge for tomorrow? Providing I can get the onion smell out of the fridge....

As much as I enjoy maple syrup, it's so nice to have something different. This looks delicious! I generally have buttermilk in the fridge, so will have to give this a try. Thank you for sharing.

This sounds lovely and you don't give yourself enough credit for the picture. This is my first visit to your blog. I had planned only to say hello, but started reading your earlier posts and stayed far longer than I intended. I really like your blog and will be back as often as I can. Have a wonderful day.
