So, I guess the first recipe I post should be the Butter Syrup recipe. We got this recipe from our great friends Steve and Kelli Gordon. Steve and Kelli were the first friends we made in Iowa City. We met them when we went for our campus visit, and felt at home in their home immediatly. Both Steves (my Steve and Steve Gordon) were in the MBA program. Steve and Kelli graduated a year before us and moved to Ankeny, then when we graduated, we ended up following them to Ankeny. They moved to Chicago a couple years later, and we joked about following them there. We visited and stayed with them in Chicago quite a few times, and one Saturday morning that we were staying at their house they made french toast with butter syrup for us. It was amazing! They graciously shared the recipe with us and we make it often. It is always on the menu for Conference Sunday and Father's Day. We love to have it with french toast made out of cinnamon bread. I always half the recipe, and it is the perfect amount for our little family.
2 cups Sugar
2 cubes Butter
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
cook sugar, butter and buttermilk until misture is hot and starting to boil, add baking soda. Stir quicky. Turn heat to low (or off). Make sure pot is big because it will foam a lot when baking soda is added. Serve while foamy.
