Serving Up {Breakfast}: Coconut Syrup

I could drink this syrup!

My kids probably already have!

I don't buy syrup from the store.  We generally opt for jams or fruit or nutella (or nothing) to top our breakfast goodies.  But when I stumbled across this recipe a couple of years ago, there was no going back!  We have been converted to syrup when it's this syrup.  To prove my point, I always have at least one back up bottle of coconut extract in the cupboard.  My kids just wouldn't have it any other way.

(recipe from The Sisters Cafe)

7-8 Tbs. butter
¾ cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp. coconut extract

Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium and stir until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and add soda and extract. It will bubble up; just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the “foam” to reduce before serving.


  1. I made this syrup tonight for my kids. I served it with French toast and it was a hit with them and me.

  2. I am so glad that it was a hit.
    My mantra is "every day is better when it starts with coconut syrup". Just kidding - but it totally could be :)
