  • 1 cup butter 2 cubes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups half & half
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 TBSP vanilla


  • Add butter, brown sugar, half & half and honey to a medium sized saucepan on medium heat. Whisk to combine as butter melts and mixture melds together.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Add in vanilla and whisk intermittently until syrup is all one color.
  • Add baking soda 1/3 at a time and whisk quickly- syrup increases in size, so be ready! Keep gently whisking until it simmers down.
  • 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.)
