Vanilla Butter Syrup will make you never want to buy store-bought syrup again - this easy homemade syrup tastes incredible on fresh pancakes!Vanilla Butter Syrup is an even better version of my original Butter Syrup recipe that I published several years ago! Don’t worry, that original recipe is still incredible, but I’ve made several changes that take it to the next level…or maybe even a few levels up! In the process of trying out a ton of different variations, I created this new Vanilla Butter Syrup recipe that I love even more. It has a lovely, rich, buttery flavor that everyone goes crazy over. If you’ve ever tried a buttermilk based syrup in the past, you’ve got to try this one. I can assure you that you’ll love it even more!!

Vanilla Butter Syrup

  • 1 cup butter (2 cubes)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups half & half
  • 1 TBSP corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 TBSP vanilla
  1. Add butter, brown sugar, half & half and corn syrup to a medium sized saucepan on medium heat. Stir to combine as butter melts and mixture melds together.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add baking soda and whisk quickly- syrup increases in size, so be ready! Keep gently whisking until it simmers down.
  4. Add in good quality vanilla and whisk intermittently until syrup is all one color.
  5. Ladle over hot pancakes and ENJOY! Store any leftovers in the fridge. (I store mine in a canning jar & heat it up in the microwave before serving again.)

  1. Made this for breakfast today and the flavors were delicious! I need to find a way to thicken this just a bit as the consistency was very watery, not syrupy.
    • Hi Sabrina! So I've tested this recipe extensively- YES, you can use heavy cream, but know that it will separate a lot, so you'll have to give it a good stir after warming it up, before spooning it onto pancakes or whatnot. :) I've never tried it without corn syrup, but it adds a sweetness and acts as a thickening agent. You can try replacing it with honey instead!
  2. This looks so good I can't wait to try. Looks so good I will want to preserve to share with others, can this be preserved by canning?
    • Hi Cheryl, I'm no canning expert by any means, so I truly don't know if this can be safely preserved through canning. Know that it lasts in the fridge for 4-6 weeks, so there's no need to hurry and consume it once you make a jar. I wish I was more help!
    • Thank you! I actually try a million pancake recipes. I was testing out different recipes, but I most closely followed this recipe for the pancake photos you're taking about: http://www.ohsweetbasil.com/melt-in-your-mouth-buttermilk-pancakes-recipe/ ENJOY!
