This amazing butter syrup made with just a handful of ingredients. You’ll never go back to store-bought after you’ve tried this homemade syrup recipe!
White pancake syrup is an easy recipe that combines some pretty basic pantry staples and cooks them down into a think blonde butter syrup. Homemade pancake syrup without brown sugar is one of my go-to recipes for so many different breakfast foods.
In fact, you’ll see this homemade syrup with corn syrup a lot (or some modified version of it) on this blog if you look hard enough.
How to Make Syrup With Sugar
Traditional maple syrup has you boiling tree sap until it becomes the stuff you know and love but this butter syrup with baking soda is nothing like that, so put those thoughts aside. This blonde butter syrup is so much better.
I got the recipe from my sister in law years ago and it quickly became a family favorite- I’m sure it’ll be a favorite in your home too.
What is White Butter Syrup?
It’s a syrup made using a generous amount of butter and buttermilk. Those (plus the other ingredients) help to give it an incredibly thick texture and rich delicious flavor. Trust me when I say that a little bit goes a long way!

How Long Does Butter Syrup Last?
I personally keep a jar of this syrup in the fridge for up to a month or two at a time. Whenever I want warm syrup over my pancakes or waffles, I simply warm it up in the microwave for about a minute and then pour it over the top of my freshly made breakfast. It’s soooo good!
What If I Don’t Have Buttermilk?
If you don’t have buttermilk on hand you can make a simple substitution by mixing 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and letting it sit for about a minute before using. It’s a close-to recipe that yields similar results, but honestly- nothing can beat the taste of this recipe made with real buttermilk.
