  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  • 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.
