Buttermilk Belgian Waffles with Vanilla Syrup

If you're a local, you've probably been to Magleby's Fresh for their all-you-can-eat french toast breakfast.  The french toast is fantastic, but it's the syrup that really makes the meal.  My recipe might not be exact, but it's pretty darn close.  If you don't have a waffle maker, try the syrup over buttermilk pancakes.

Shopping List
Corn Syrup
Baking Soda
Baking Powder
Waffles: (makes about 5 waffles)
In a medium sized bowl combine the following ingredients:
2 C. flour
2 eggs
2 C. buttermilk
2.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs sugar
1/4 C + 2 Tbs oil

The order of the ingredients really doesn't matter in this recipe.  With morning cooking laziness, I generally throw everything in before I even mix the ingredients.  Stir until all ingredients are wet - but do not over mix.  
Cook batter in waffle maker, using your specific waffle maker instructions.

Vanilla Syrup:
In a small pot combine
1 stick (1/2 C.) butter
1 C. sugar
1 C. buttermilk
1 Tbs. vanilla
1 Tbs corn syrup

Bring ingredients to a boil - and let them boil for ten seconds.  Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp baking soda.  Syrup will be very foamy.

***Serving Suggestion
This meal is fantastic with fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream.
