A few weeks ago, I went to Provo with Corrine. We went down to see Kelli Ann, my niece compete with BHS at the State Drill team competition. Which, btw, they won. All three categories, military, dance and kick, which also gave them first in the overall award as well. Here are a couple of pics.
Or “en pointe” you know, on your toes. Years and years of lessons, competitions, missed vacations, practices on weekends, early mornings, late evenings. Stephen (my 18 year old baseball player son) and I had a discussion about who the most committed and hardest working athletes were at BHS. He disagreed with my assessment (but it’s my blog, so he doesn’t really get a say) hands down, the most dedicated year-round, are the Mandonelles.
- 1/2 cup butter not margarine
- 1/2 cup buttermilk* see recipe notes for substitute
- 1 cup sugar granulated
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla optional
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Heat butter, buttermilk, and sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan.
Heat until boiling, stirring often. Boil for about 1 minute.
Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Stir until combined. Serve immediately over pancakes or waffles.
Refrigerate any leftovers.
- Make sure to use a large enough pan. This mixture will bubble and rise a bit more than double in the pan while cooking and when adding the soda at the end.
- If you don’t have buttermilk, place 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into a 1 cup measure. Then fill to the 1 cup mark with milk or a combination of milk, half and half or cream. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and proceed with recipe directions. This recipe only calls for 1/2 cup of buttermilk, so you will have an extra 1/2 cup of buttermilk leftover.
- I have not tried it yet, but I am almost certain this recipe will also work with milk instead of buttermilk!

Man that photo is the bomb…I am making pancakes for dinner tonight, and I love the syrup!
That sounds reallllllly good. I've never made homemade syrup before, but it sound so easy.. And a LOT better than store-bought (same as the rest of your blessed blog). I'll have to try it sometime.
I defffff agree the Mandonelles put in the most work at our school- which is saying a lot since every other team does as well.. But these girls work from the monday after the last day of school till the last day of school. They are awesome, and their hard work has most definitely not gone unnoticed. Good job to Kelli and all the other girls! 🙂
Thanks Si for yet *another* wonderful recipe. I've been suggesting this blog to so many people and have it on my blog roll on mine. 🙂
we love that syrup too! And congrats to the team!!!
I'm so excited to make this syrup to take to girl's camp! And what an amazing surprise to look up the recipe on your blog and find the pictures and nice words you wrote to Kelli! You're so sweet, Si. I love reading all your memorable stories, as well as making your delicious recipes! Our girls camp will love your recipes!
Thank you for sharing! My kids (who are not usually syrup fans) LOVED it. Definitely keeping this as a family favorite!
My kids love this recipe too, Shalon. It’s definitely a keeper in my family! Thanks for sharing,
I recently discovered a bottled cinnamon buttermilk syrup that was really good. So,I thought , “why not just add cinnamon to this recipe.” God decision for when you want something different. This syrup is so good!
How much does this recipe for syrup yield?
