A homemade buttermilk syrup that tastes just like a cinnamon roll! Take french toast, pancakes, and waffles to a whole new level of yummy!
I am about to share one of my very favorite recipes. We call it “liquid cinnamon roll.” We use it on pancakes, waffles, french toast, and sometimes even as an ice cream topping.

It tastes exactly like a decadent cinnamon roll fresh from the oven, lathered with a cream cheese frosting. It’s easy to make and you can just store it in the fridge. But be careful, because you will never be able to look at that plain old maple syrup from the store the same way ever again. If you have ever wanted to try and make your own syrup, now is the time my friends. This stuff is ridiculously good!

Watch the video below where Rachel will walk you through every step of this recipe. Sometimes it helps to have a visual, and we’ve always got you covered with our cooking show. You can find the complete collection of recipes on YouTube, Facebook Watch, or our Facebook Page, or right here on our website with their corresponding recipes.

Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Instructions
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Use a much larger saucepan than you think you need because this mixture gets crazy when you add the baking soda. Whisk in the sugar, buttermilk, vanilla, and cinnamon into the melted butter and bring to a boil.
  • Once it reaches a boil, simmer for 2 minutes, whisking constantly.
  • Whisk in baking soda, and cook for 30 seconds before removing from heat. It'll foam up like crazy which is fun for kids to watch. The foam will go away after a few minutes.
  • Let it cool, or serve it warm. It will thicken as it cools. Store it in a jar in the fridge.

Yes! This smelled and tasted just like cinnamon rolls! It was a great addition to your greek yogurt waffles!
I stored it in the fridge and couldn’t wait to re-use it today. Sadly, it was solid & unpourable. I will have to amend my recipe to note that if I want it again I need to leave it out at room temp for about an hour or more. I wish I had known.
[it was stored on the fridge door]

My husband and I love this syrup. Don’t make it ve ry often, I will find ways to eat it other than pancakes and my waistline doesn’t need it.
One thing I did try and love is putting a spoon full in my coffee. It is wonderful, I like it anyway.

How long will the syrup last in the refrigerator? Can it be frozen in an airtight container without sacrificing the flavor? Thank you for all of your amazing recipes.

What role does the baking soda play in this recipe? Have you ever made it without adding the baking soda?

Made this today and it is DELISH! Only prob is that it is rather thin. What can I do to make it thicker? Would cornstarch work? Or?

I made this last night along with the french toast and big hit. My 2 year old Granddaughters couldn’t get enough. They were licking the syrup off the bacon. We told them it was secret sauce🤣🤣

Cut the recipe in half and used 6 pieces of Pepperidge Farm sourdough bread. The liquid cinnamon roll syrup is a must! Love making French toast and this recipe rocks!
