Homemade Vanilla Butter SyrupI’ve been tweaking my original butter syrup recipe for years and finally have a version that I want to share. It’s absolutely the best Butter Syrup I’ve ever tasted!  It has a lovely, rich, buttery flavor that everyone goes crazy over. If you’ve ever tried a buttermilk based syrup in the past, you’ve got to try this one. I can assure you that you’ll love it even more!!

What is Butter Syrup?

Butter Syrup is a homemade syrup recipe made with butter, some type of dairy and brown sugar. I’ve used Buttermilk in the past but have since tested this version that I enjoy even more. Buttermilk tends to separate, so you constantly have to stir to combine. Butter Syrup has a fabulous sweet, rich flavor that tastes SO much better than any store-bought syrup- even the expensive ones!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this syrup:

— Butter: No substitutes! I prefer to use Salted Butter.

— brown sugar: Light or Dark brown sugar works- I say use what you have on hand.

— Half & Half: I really prefer Half & Half in this recipe. You can always make your own by combining half heavy cream and half milk, if you’d like. I’ve even used Dairy-Free with great success!

— Honey: There’s not much needed for this recipe but it’s critical as it acts as an emulsifier. It melds all the ingredients beautifully- far better than corn syrup.

— Vanilla Extract: Vanilla flavor makes this recipe sing so I suggest using a good quality vanilla extract or a Vanilla Bean Paste. I linked my favorites!

— baking soda: This is added at the very last step to lighten the syrup a bit and make it less heavy. Make sure you use a medium sized saucepan because the baking soda will make it bubble up!

Homemade Vanilla Butter Syrup ingredientsHow to Make Vanilla Butter Syrup

Add butter, brown sugar, half & half and honey to a medium sized saucepan on medium heat. Whisk to combine as butter melts and mixture melds together.

Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add in vanilla and whisk intermittently until syrup is all one color.

Add baking soda 1/3 at a time and whisk quickly- syrup increases in size, so be ready! Keep gently whisking until it simmers down.

Ladle over hot pancakes and ENJOY! Store any leftovers in the fridge. (I store mine in a canning jar & heat it up in the microwave before serving again.)

Homemade Vanilla Butter SyrupCan you Freeze Butter Syrup?

Yes, you can freeze homemade syrup in an airtight container for up to 6 months. Just thaw on the countertop or in the fridge when you’re ready to use it. I find that previously frozen syrup separates a bit more, so be sure to whisk well when reheating.

How do your Store Butter Syrup?

I store my homemade syrup in a glass canning jar. You can even get a pour spout lid that works great!
