Easy Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup Recipe on! The BEST syrup ever!

I love the movie Elf. We watch it every holiday season. Buddy is hilarious! I just love him. I know it isn’t the holiday season yet, but this Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup reminds me of Buddy. If you’ve seen the movie, I really hope you have, then you know Buddy is obsessed with syrup. He puts it on anything and everything. He poured it on his spaghetti and considers syrup one of the four main food groups. ย “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

I thought Buddy’s syrup obsession was an elf thing, until I made this Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup. I am now with Buddy! I believe Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup needs to be one of the four main good groups!

Brown Butter Buttermilk Syrup is our family's favorite syrup. It goes great with pancakes, waffles, or French toast!

Yield: Serves 4-6

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and continue to cook, swirling occasionally, until butter turns golden brown, Skim foam from top, and remove from heat. Pour into a bowl to stop the cooking, leaving any burned sediment behind.

2. Combine browned butter, sugar, and buttermilk in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat and whisk together until sugar dissolves. When butter mixture starts to boil, carefully whisk in the baking soda and vanilla. The mixture will bubble up, so make sure you use a large saucepan. Serve with waffles, pancakes, or French toast.

Note-syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Reheat before serving.
