Homemade Buttermilk Syrup

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I was making pancakes one morning when I realized that I did not have any syrup. It is very rich with a slight caramel flavor. But so yummy on pancakes and waffles. If you do not have buttermilk on hand mix 2 1/4 teaspoons of vinegar with 3/4 cups of milk.

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cups butter
2 tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, buttermilk, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda. Bring to a boil, and cook for 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla.
