A simple alternative to regular syrup, homemade butter syrup is absolutely delicious on pancakes, waffles and even french toast recipes.
I absolutely love maple syrup, but there is nothing like homemade syrup. There are so many varieties and possibilities. I may start sharing more, cause I love breakfast and any way to make breakfast better than it already is, is a winner to me.
This homemade butter syrup is so simple and easy to make and can easily be whipped up while you are making your favorite pancake or waffle recipes.
What Ingredients Are Needed To Make Butter Syrup
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Heavy cream (or half and half would work too)
How To Make Butter Syrup
To get started, cut the butter into slices and melt it in a saucepan on the stovetop over medium heat.
While the butter is melting, pour the can of condensed milk in a microwavable bowl or measuring cup. I like to use a large measuring cup.
Heat the condensed milk in the microwave until it bubbles. Doing it in thirty-second increments. Keeping a close eye on it so it doesn’t boil over.
Once it bubbles a bit, remove the condensed milk from the microwave and pour it into the saucepan with the melted butter whisking them together.
The butter and condensed milk will stay semi separated but keep whisking for a minute.
Add in the heavy cream and whisk a little more aggressively until all ingredients combine and become smooth.
Continue whisking for another minute or two and remove from the heat.
Allow to cool a bit and serve warm over any of your breakfast favorites.
