This decadent and delicious cinnamon buttermilk syrup is so easy to make!
One of my favorite skills as a baker and cook is learning to make something at home that I’ve always just bought at the store without thinking about it. Things like homemade tortillas, french bread, salad dressing, marinara sauce… all totally delicious when homemade! Syrup is one of those things that I never would have thought I could make at home, but it turns out it’s totally easy to make, and tastes way better than store-bought. I’ve been making this homemade buttermilk syrup for years now, but I decided that since it’s fall, I needed to come up with a cinnamon version to top all of my favorite fall breakfasts. This cinnamon buttermilk syrup is perfection! It’s buttery and smooth and totally delicious, and so simple to make that you could easily whip it up on a weekday morning.
We enjoyed our cinnamon syrup on baked pumpkin french toast, but it’s also delicious on pancakes, waffles, or regular french toast. It will keep well in the fridge for a couple of weeks, and it’s easy to reheat in the microwave whenever you want to use it. If you need syrup for a bigger crowd, you could easily double or triple the recipe. Just be careful to use a big enough pot, because when you stir in the vanilla and baking soda the syrup will bubble up quite a bit. This cinnamon buttermilk syrup is a must try!

- 1/2 cup butter cut into pieces
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon dark corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
