Cinnamon Syrup

I adore breakfast.  I adore it in the morning.  And I adore it in evening.  I adore it for lunch even.  And why do I adore breakfast?  Mainly because of the syrup.  Syrup is like frosting – an amazing cake can be totally ruined by a horrible frosting.  On the other hand, if you have a stellar frosting… an amazing cake becomes out-of-this-world great, right? The same goes for syrup.  Our all time favorite at The Sisters Cafe is Coconut Syrup -suffice it to say I am tempted to lick my plate when I serve it. But we have some other favorites, too, like: Strawberry Syrup, Wonderful Berry Syrup, and Blueberry Syrup.  The newest in our retinue is Cinnamon Syrup, which I am now a HUGE fan of.  At first I only ate it on pumpkin waffles/pancakes and applesauce pancakes, which it compliments perfectly by the way.  But I’ve found myself branching out to other recipes like these lately.  And you know what?  This little syrup can stand on its own two feet.

Cinnamon Syrup
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a pot over medium heat.
  2. Stir until butter melts and sugar dissolves.
  3. Bring to a boil, and boil one minute.
  4. Remove from heat and add baking soda and cinnamon.
  5. It will bubble up; just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the ‘fizz’ to reduce before serving.
