Our favorite Syrup Recipes: Buttermilk and Coconut

I have been loving waffles recently and my absolute favorite is Nutella with Strawberries and whipped cream.  Just like Waffle Love!  We are still looking for a good Waffle Love knock off waffle recipe but until then, good old Bisquick works wonders! :)

Here are some of our favorite toppings!  The two syrups are just too good to pass up!

Sweetened Whipped Cream
This is amazing with hot chocolate too!
Recipe from Chef In Training 

3 C. heavy whipping cream
3/4 C. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
Beat heavy cream on high and gradually add in sugar and vanilla until whipped cream is formed. You want it someone on the stiffer side.
Coconut Syrup
I got this recipe from a Stake Relief Society presidency member, I still remember she had copies of the recipe on hand because she knew everyone would love it.  Thanks Sister Reese!  I'm not even kidding it puts any waffle over the top delicious!
1/2 C. butter
3/4 C. buttermilk
1 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. coconut extract
Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a medium saucepan.  Stir over medium heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves.  Bring to a boil and boil one minute.
Remove from heat and add baking soda and extract, stirring constantly.  It will bubble up, so if you pot is small, hold it over the sink to avoid spillage.  Continue to stir syrup and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.  Serve over almost any breakfast food:  waffles, pancakes, French toast, crepes, etc.
Buttermilk Syrup
We first had this syrup at a family breakfast with the Strong's and I still remember just wanting to put it on everything! It's that good!  Make sure to make it in a large soup pot, because it will bubble quite a bit when you add the baking soda.
1/2 C. buttermilk
1 C. sugar
1 stick of butter
1 tsp. corn syrup
Mix over medium heat then add:
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
We love to smear on some Nutella while the waffle is still hot then pile high with strawberries cream and loads of syrup!  We've also heard of Biscoff butter, peanut butter, bananas, and raspberries!
