Holy Hannah. This stuff is fantastic. You may not think about lemon syrup when you normally think about pancakes or any hot breakfast, but please let me convince you. The other day I had a bunch of meyer lemons to use and it was a saturday so we were wanting something hot for breakfast. I started to get everything out for buttermilk syrup and I suddenly realized that these new greek yogurt pancakes I had made would be delicious with Meyer Lemon Syrup. MMMMMMM. Ding, ding, ding! We were literally licking our plates. It’s so creamy and bright. Oh, it’s so good!!!
Meyer Lemon Syrup
Recipe adapted from Mom’s old Buttermilk recipe
1 Cube Unsalted Butter (1/2 Cup)
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Tablespoon Karo Syrup
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
1/2 Cup Meyer Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 Meyer Lemon
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, add the butter, karo syrup, sugar, milk, lemon juice, and the lemon zest. Heat over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and then take off the heat. Quickly add the baking soda and place back on the heat stirring continuously. Stir for one minute and remove from the heat. This can easily boil over. Many times I wont even put it back on the heat. ENJOY!
