Fall is the season for pumpkin recipes so obviously, pumpkin waffles and buttermilk syrup were in order. While I'm not the biggest pumpkin pie fan, I do love a good pumpkin chocolate chip cookie and some warm pumpkin waffles.
For the waffles I used this recipe I found via Pinterest and then topped them with my mom's foolproof buttermilk syrup.
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter
4 tablespoons corn syrup
2 tablespoons baking soda
4 tsp vanilla
Start with a big pot. And I mean big. This stuff boils up a lot.
Put in all ingredients (but vanilla) and bring to a boil over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Stirring throughout, you should notice the syrup should get really foamy and start darkening into a caramel color. After 5 minutes, turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla.
