1 1/2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Buttermilk
(I never buy regular buttermilk; I use *Buttermilk Powder and water)
1 stick Butter
2 Tbsp Light Karo Syrup
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Vanilla
- Mix the first 5 ingredients in a LARGE saucepan. (Seriously, the size of the pan needs to be at least 3-4 times larger than what you've got in the pan, because the baking soda and buttermilk will react, and will spill all OVER your stove if the pan isn't large enough.)
- Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 7 minutes.
- Take off the stove and add vanilla.
*Buttermilk Powder can be found in the baking aisle at your local grocer.
