A few years ago I tried buttermilk syrup and fell in love, I never looked at maple syrup the same. This Buttermilk Bourbon Syrup I spiced up for the holidays and to go with my Eggnog French Toast ,but this can be used on just about anything. Don’t be scared of the bourbon , it isn’t harsh and the alcohol cooks out. It can be eliminated all together but I love the flavor , it really adds a special touch. This syrup also would be a great addition to my Spiced Pumpkin Apple Pancakes.
This Buttermilk Bourbon syrup is thick , rich and super easy to make. Very basic ingredients most people have on hand. Believe me once you try this you will be ruined and never want bottled syrup again. It is an indulgence I wouldn’t have everyday but is perfect for special occasions.
In a medium sauce pan combine the buttermilk, both sugars, corn syrup, bourbon , cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook on medium heat until the mixture comes to boil. Reduce heat and simmer four to five minutes stirring from the bottom.
Turn heat off and whisk in vanilla and baking soda. It will foam up but don’t worry the foam will settle .
Serve warm and Enjoy.
