Buttermilk Syrup with a side of German Pancake!

Just in case you haven’t made Buttermilk Syrup yet–you MUST!  It is so easy and comes out as a divine gooey caramel sauce.  We usually put ours on German Pancakes, but it tastes delectable on just about anything.

Buttermilk Syrup
3/4 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine everything, except vanilla, in a large pot (syrup will boil up) and start stirring.  Bring to a boil and keep boiling for about 8 minutes, stirring frequently.    Syrup is done when it  turns a light golden brown color.  Remove from heat and add vanilla. That’s it!              

German Pancakes
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
6 eggs

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Toss butter into a 9×13 in. baking pan.  Place pan in oven, while it is heating, to melt butter. Combine milk, flour, and eggs in the blender and blend well.  Pour mixture into hot baking dish and cook for about 20 minutes until golden and puffy.  Eat right away! 

For Volcano Pancake variation top with cheddar cheese immediately out of the oven.  Last night, I topped mine with raspberries, syrup, and sour cream that I mixed with a little brown sugar.
This was my first serving of five!

I needed to double my German Pancake recipe for my family of 6.  Just one batch of Buttermilk Syrup makes plenty.  My kids and husband kept stealing extra syrup even after the pancakes were gone!

Grateful Mom Goal of the Day:  Eat something a bit healthier for dinner tonight.
