1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk (can subsitute regular milk w/ 1 tsp lemon juice--let sit 5 minutes)
1 T light corn syrup
Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Combine. Add 2 teaspoons orange or lemon zest, if desired.
This is the best homemade syrup I've ever tried; thick and creamy. Well worth the extra effort if you want to make breakfast special. I didn't try any orange or lemon lest this time, but maybe I'll experiment another time--just don't know how you could make this better.
