Homemade Syrup

A neighbor brought us buttermilk syrup in a pint jar for Christmas. It was delicious and such a cute Christmas gift. I found this recipe online here and wonder if it might be the same least close enough. It is so good. I don't ever want any breakfast without this syrup again. There is no maple flavor in this. It is a vanilla/butter flavor.
I only made half this recipe and it was more than enough for our breakfast. It will be worth making the full recipe because it is simple and then there might be leftover.

1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup plain yogurt (when I halfed the recipe, I used a 6 oz. container)
1/2 cup butter
3 T. corn syrup
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla

Bring the first four ingredients to a boil in a large pot. Once boiling, add baking soda and vanilla. Remove from stove and serve.
*After the baking soda is added, it gets very frothy but calms down as it sits.
*Store the extra in the refrigerator.

That looks like something I should try. My kids love french toast and waffles, etc. I wish I could collect some of these dishes....that pitcher is adorable and it has blue on it!

I think I need to make German pancakes and top them with this. Perhaps tomorrow morning to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you know, because he was known for enjoying breakfast foods???
The only correlation is that Spencer has tomorrow off and it is fun to have a fun breakfast on days like that.

Did the "syrup" your friend brought you actually have buttermilk in it, do you think? And you tried it with yogurt instead? If you boil buttermilk it gets icky, so am wondering how it could possibly be in a boiled syrup. Hmmm.
