Muffin Tip

Tip of the day!  The key to nice,  soft, and moist muffins is not to over mix/stir them!  Do the very minimal!  If you over mix they come out dry and hard.  Just thought I'd throw that out there today. :)

Buttermilk Syrup Recipe

Ever had buttermilk syrup?  If  no, then you need to try it NOW!  If yes, then you understand the need to try this stuff!  I remember a few years ago my sister mentioned how good buttermilk syrup was, and then proceeded to make some.  For some reason it didn't turn out and I didn't get to try it.  This morning when I was making some German pancakes for my kiddos, I remember I was out of our beloved Mrs. Butterwoth's syrup.  I thought oh no, what am I to do??  Then I remembered the buttermilk syrup!  I came to the internet and googled it....thank heavens for did I ever live without it??  Anyway this recipe came up.  I'm telling you it's amazing, you should try it next time you make pancakes, German pancakes, scones, like my husband said this morning "this stuff would go good with anything!  Spaghetti?  Why not?" lol.  Anyway it was a huge hit this monring at my house. :D

½ cups Butter
1 cup Sugar
½ cups Buttermilk
1 Tablespoon Karo Syrup
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla

In a LARGE pot, combine butter, sugar, buttermilk, and Karo syrup, and bring to a boil for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add baking soda and vanilla. Mixture will fizz to TWICE THE SIZE or more, so make sure you use a good-sized pot! Set it aside to thicken while stirring occasionally. Pour over waffles, pancakes, and French toast to make them oh. so. much. better!
