Amazing French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

Breakfast is everyones favorite meal in our house. Or should I say breakfast foods are everyones favorite meal in our house. It is the meal that when I make I know everyone will devour! So not only do we have fun making breakfast on the weekends together as a family, breakfast for dinner is a regular in our home. At dinner the other night my oldest son told me that a little neighbor girl said that she always wants to eat dinner at our house because we have fun things like french toast and waffles for dinner. I couldn’t help but laugh knowing that part of the reason I do breakfast for dinner is that it is fast and I know everyone will eat it! French toast is my husbands favorite breakfast food. So I try to mix it in as much as I can! Waffles and pancakes are also very regular in our home! But this buttermilk syrup is made every.single.time my kids won’t eat maple syrup from a bottle anymore. Its homemade syrup or …peanut butter and jelly haha.
This recipe has been made by my mom throughout my junior high and high school days. I remember having tons and tons of kids over at our house when school started late and my mom making this french toast. I have 6 siblings who also have the same memories of their friends gathering to enjoy this exact french toast. My mom would make it for my brothers football team after a Friday night game or at 2 am when our house was still full of high schoolers. This is a family recipe that my mom has served with love to us and our friends growing up and I hope to do the same for my children. Where there is good food no one can help but keep away! I hope your family loves this recipe and the famous buttermilk syrup as much as ours does!
