Buttermilk Syrup

This one is perfect with the oatmeal pancakes recipe below.  It's also heavenly with pumpkin pancakes, and buckwheat pancakes, and Bisquick pancakes, and ice cream, and just with a spoon . . .

Buttermilk Syrup
3/4 c. butter
3 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
3 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. vanilla

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a large pot.  (And I mean large.  Don't think you can get away with a little sauce pan.  It really does froth up quite a bit!)  Remove pot from the burner; add baking soda and vanilla. Mixture will froth up and rise considerably. Stir regularly and let sit until the syrup settles and bubbles are gone. Serve warm.

Kirsten, I love this recipe! It's totally nostalgic for me... when I was in college, it seems like my roommates and I would make this every other night. The stuff is so stinkin' good!
