My sweetest bestest friend in the whole wide world (because I am "like 12!")... Keri! Among a coutless number of other reasons... introduced me and the rest of our friends to this recipe. I think the title should be changed to "Caramel Buttermilk Syrup That We Put On EVERYTHING". The typical french toast, pancakes and waffles will due, but we have brought it to a whole other level... ice cream, banana nut bread, pumpkin pie, cinnamon rolls, zuchini bread and even popcorn. A single batch will never due... we ALWAYS double it.
Ohhh and btw, the best thing to make french toast with is Franz Texas Toast. I just wish for you that this blog this was a smellablog or even tasteablog (kind of like smell-avision - I am trying to be funny here - is it working? --insert cricket noises here!--)...
The following is a single batch...
1 1/2c sugar
3/4c buttermilk (I use the milk and lemon juice substitute)
2tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
Put the preceeding ingredients in a LARGE pot. It may not look like much, but it will when it begins to boil.
Bring to a boil on medium medium-high heat (like a 6 on my stove -if you could see it HA!)
Cook for 7 minutes, then remove from heat.
Add 2tsp vanilla.
Happy Eating! And of course there is NO CALORIES in this recipe!!!! Right????
