Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 cup


  • 2 T butter
  • scant 1/2 c buttermilk
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract


  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter, then add buttermilk and sugar, stirring over medium heat until dissolved. Bring to a boil and let cook for one minute.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and coconut extract. It will bubble up a lot - give it a minute to settle down, stir to combine well, and serve immediately.
  3. It will keep in the fridge for about two weeks. Just warm it up and re-stir before using.
