Coconut Syrup

Coconut Syrup

I’ve been on somewhat of a Homemade Syrup kick lately. Anyone remember the Cinnamon Syrup I posted a few months ago? The stuff is like sweet dream pie, I tell you. I feel like kissing it when I make it, truly. Excepting that kissing syrup would be pretty weird and would end up giving my children just one more reason to look at me with those eyes that say “I have never known anyone weirder than you”.

Do your kids ever give you that look?

In public do they whisper in your ear, things like “Jeeeeez, you are so embarrassing, Mom. Pull it together before the earth swallows me whole”.


Must only be me, I suppose. I try to be on my best behavior, truly I do. Why would I want to embarrass my dear teenagers. Good glory. For instance, I would NEVER kiss syrup in public. I have my limits you know.

But if I WERE the type of person that likes to go around kissing syrups, this Coconut Syrup would be first in line.

It’s rich, creamy, buttery and tastes like coconut. Drizzle the blessed concoction over Pancakes or French Toast and you’ve got a match made in Kissing Heaven.

If you are a coconut fan, I hope you give it a go!

Let me show you how to make it happen…



Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 cups
Recipe from Cooking Alamode

1/2 C butter
3/4 C buttermilk
1 C sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1-2 t coconut extract


1. Grab 1/2 cup of butter and place it in a medium-sized sauce pan. Be carefull not to use a sauce pan that is small. The syrup will bubble up and roll right over the side. Then you might kick the stove or start to cry or drop a curse word, and we don’t want that to happen, okay? Just grab a nice medium-sized pan and all will be well.
2. Melt the butter over medium high heat. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk and 1 cup of sugar. Stir it all nicely together.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring continually. Once you have a nice rolling boil, let it do so for 1 minute.


4. Remove the pan from the stove and add 1 teaspoon baking soda


and 1-2 teaspoons coconut extract.


Stir it all in to combine. The syrup will start to foam up and bubble. Do not be alarmed.
4. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. It will thicken slightly as it cools down, which will give you a chance to do something like…make pancakes. 🙂

    I wonder, have you ever tried it with fresh coconut? How would you add it to the recipe?

      I haven’t ever tried it with fresh coconut. Sounds yummy. 🙂 I wonder if you toasted the coconut and then sprinkled it over the top of the pancakes after your poured the syrup on if it would work out well? Let me know if you try it and how you like it!

    I can’t have dairy, you think this would work with full fat coconut milk and dairy free margarine? Maybe add a tablespoon of vinegar.

      I’m not sure how it would work with coconut milk and margarine. Let me know if you try it and how it works out for you.

        Hair falls due to genetic reosans, stress, pollution, thyroid imbalance, chemicals in hair styling products and lack of proper nutrition. Home remedies are cheap , natural and without any side effects. Some of the home remedies for treating hair fall are: 1.Apply the white of a raw egg on the hair for 30 minutes, and then wash it off with a shampoo. A mixture of lemon juice and egg white could also be used to strengthen the roots of hair. 2. Massage the head with oil for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with a shampoo. A hot oil massage with olive oil will also help.3.Apply a mixture of lemon juice and juice of amla to the scalp. This also helps control dandruff in the hair 4. Boil neem leaves in water for an hour and let it cool. Wash the hair with this water. Alternately neem oil can be mixed with coconut oil and massaged where there is hair fall5. The juice of fresh coriander can be massaged onto the scalp will reduce hair loss. 6. Ensure that you eat nutritious food, with plenty of leafy vegetables. Have a soya milk drink and multivitamin tablets if you do not have time to have a healthy breakfast.7. Apply conditioner only to your hair not to the scalp or hair roots. The conditioner could damage your hair. Henna (mehandi) will help control hair loss. 8.Try to reduce the stress and tension in your life, learn to relax. Stress causes hair loss.

    I truly had to laugh about your teenagers. I am knee deep with a 16 year old girl who will not give me the time of day in public and then gets in the car and rants for miles about how embarrassing I am to her. Oh the joys!!

    Love the syrup!!! Total yum!!

    Hi Jamie,

    This syrup is delicious. I wanted to recreate the banana pancakes with coconut syrup from my favorite breakfast place in Hawaii but have never been able to find the right syrup….until now! Thanks so much!!

    My SIL made this for us and I had to get the recipe so she forwarded me the link! Love it! She substituted the butter with coconut oil which I think I’m also going to do but just needed to say kudos on this amazing syrup!!

    My sister-in-law made this for sourdough pancakes while we were camping this weekend. Then at dinner that night when we had Navajo tacos someone mentioned that the leftover scones would be great with the coconut syrup, so she whipped up another batch and we had that for breakfast this morning. I had to come find the recipe as soon as I got cell service!
