  1. My Auntie made this delicious syrup everytime we came over for pancakes or waffles. It's been my all time favorite ever since. When I was a young woman I tried and tried to make this same syrup but to no avail it would never come out like my auntie's the butter would never melt so - Read more ...
  2. It was quick and easy once it cooled down it was thick I loved it.. need it for breakfast biscuits and hot and fresh delicious
  3. Perfect for doughnut topping/dipping!
  4. I poured it over individual cakes made using the fruity bundt cake recipe from this site. Love the way it looks. Only thing to note is that it cools very fast so it would be a good idea to have all cupcakes ready before making the sauce.
  5. I made this to go with some banana pancakes. I knew the pancakes would have really strong flavor all by themselves so I didn't want a really flavorful syrup but this was basically just sugar. I think next time I will try adding some nutmeg or something...
  6. I decided to try this recipe for an Allrecipes faceless recipes challenge (recipes without photos). It has a good flavor. It kind of looks like melted butter, but has a taste like a not overly sweet butterscotch. I made 1/2 recipe, because I didn't need a full cup of syrup. I also lowered the sat. - Read more ...
  7. My family love the homemade syrup better then store bought. Had it over Rasberry Buckle and stuff french toast.
  8. I found this syrup GREAT!!it tastes jus as good on plain ol' butter cake..I poured it over the cake when still warm and sprinkled chopped up pieces of almonds over that...The result was delicious..Some might find it a lil too sweet to their liking but overall my family loved it..thank you so much for this!!:)
