Magic Syrup

Renee T. has shared this classic frothy vanilla and buttermilk syrup with me and now it's my go to recipe every time! --Karen S.

Magic Syrup 

Combine the following in a medium sauce pan or a 2 quart microwavable bowl:
1/2 C. butter (Butter is best.)
1/2 C. buttermilk (Buttermilk substitute of 1/2 C. milk and 1 T of lemon juice is good, too.)
1 C. white sugar (Brown sugar is a good substitute.)
Heat till simmering.  The longer you simmer the thicker it will be. It doesn't take long.

Take off heat and add:
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. scant of baking soda (This reacts with the acid in the buttermilk to make it foamy.)

 Note: for french toast thick slices of white "Texas Toast" type bread is good.  Chunky cinnamon bread like the type from Kneaders is AWESOME!!!!
