French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

Can you say YUM, YUM?  This syrup is a caramel type syrup and is delicious.  It is so easy to make and tastes wonderful.  I love it with fresh strawberries, but in the off season I keep some frozen on hand.  My teenage son was hesitant to try this, but once he did he discovered it's the best syrup ever.  Give it a try! 
Don't let the buttermilk part turn you away - see my tip at the bottom of the post!  You can even make it with sour milk in an pinch, but try getting some buttermilk powder - it's worth it.
Use a good size pan, because this stuff really grows.

It needs to boil for just a few minutes.

After adding vanilla and baking soda, you can see that it has tripled in size - therefore the need for a large pan.

When it first comes off the stove it will be really frothy - no problem just serve and enjoy.  After it sits it will look like this.  It may not look like much, but it tastes divine.

 French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

Prepare French Toast as desired top with fresh fruit such as strawberries or blueberries and pour buttermilk syrup over top.  It is divine!

Buttermilk Syrup:
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1 cube real butter
1 tsp light corn syrup
Bring to boil in a saucepan.  Remove from head and add:
½ tsp vanilla
½ tsp baking soda
Stir with a wire whip and be careful as it really foams up!-about triple the size.

(I use powdered buttermilk that I keep on hand and mix up a 1/2 cup at a time.  There are quite a few places you can get this from - I ordered mine from the prepared pantry -  Of course you can use regular buttermilk from the store.
