Warning, if you don’t have a sweet tooth, then this recipe is not for you! I’m not sure how authentically Hawaiian this thick amazing syrup is, but my sister Heather got it while living in Hawaii. Now it has become a family favorite in my home and also among my 9 older siblings and parents. It is super easy, super fast, and tastes like it was made by angels.
- 1 stick of real unsalted butter
- 1 Cup of sugar
- 1/2 Cup of buttermilk
- 1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon of coconut oil
Soften the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter begins to melt, add the sugar, buttermilk, and baking soda. Stir constantly with a silicon spatula or wooden spoon. Be careful to regularly scrape the sides of the pan to prevent caramelizing or burning. And watch the pan carefully, as this sticky syrup has a tendency to over-boil. Trust me, that’s not too fun.
Once the mixture comes to a simmer, quickly add 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil (it’ll be a solid…like butter) and stir. Immediately remove the saucepan from the heat.
This syrup is best served immediately, when it’s frothy. My family especially loves pouring it over waffles made with the Bisquick mix. I’ll be doing a review on Bisquick waffles in the near future, so check back!
