Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan combine the butter, sugar, half & half, vanilla, and spices together and cook over medium heat until the butter melts and the mixture begins to boil.
  • Boil the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, then remove from heat. Add the baking soda while whisking continuously. The mixture will rise once the baking soda is added, so to be safe I would recommend doing this over the sink if you think your pot is a little on the small side. 
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container with NO METAL in the fridge.

Notes

  • If you do not have vanilla paste, 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract can be used instead.
  • Nutrition is an estimate per cup of syrup.
  • This makes a large batch ideal for holiday brunch, but you can easily cut the recipe in half for a smaller family breakfast.¬†
  • Store any leftovers in an air-tight container with NO METAL in the fridge for up to 2 weeks - microwave to reheat
