Oh, my goodness!!! You cannot believe how yummy this is!!! Seriously!!!!! It is so rich and delicious. You all must try it right now!!!! Go--get the ingredients right now!! It's worth it!!! We had it over French toast, and it was heavenly! OK--here's the recipe....
Melt one stick of butter (not margarine) and 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1 cup sugar in a LARGE saucepan over medium low heat (Yes, large!). When butter is melted, bring the syrup to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and add 1 teaspoon vanilla and whisk in 1 teaspoon baking soda. The syrup will foam up when you add the baking soda. Whisk the syrup for a second or two and the foam will go down a little, but not very much. Serve immediately over french toast, waffles, pancakes, etc. As the syrup cools down, the foam goes away and the syrup gets thicker, but it's still super yummy!!!
