Okay, this may be the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted on here. However, it is so stinking good that I just had to share it with you all. I discovered this in my new favorite cookbook:
Even though it says “new” on the cover, it’s from 1953. I found it at a yard sale this summer for $1. A dollar well spent as I have found SO many good recipes in here. Actually, I was given the BH&G cookbook from the late 1990’s as a wedding gift and have used it heavily as well. Even if I didn’t use the recipes, I would still enjoy just looking through it at all the cute retro pics, like these:
You can definitely tell this is from another era. Note that the Mom in the pictures always has on a dress, apron, and a smile (no pearls though ;)). I think if my husband came home to me dressed like that he would think I’m either (a) trying way too hard to be cute or (b) that I’ve finally lost my mind. Granted, most days I do like my role as homemaker, but I’m far from looking that polished!
Okay, on to the recipe. This wasn’t even listed as a recipe, just a little one paragraph insert underneath of a waffle recipe in the book. My husband actually discovered it and made it the first time. On Sunday mornings he and the kids usually make some sort of scrumptious breakfast, so they made this with waffles and had me guess what was in the recipe. I was totally wrong! I thought for sure it had either maple syrup or corn syrup in it, but it actually doesn’t. As I mentioned in the beginning, it’s ridiculously easy to make.
Honey Butter Syrup
1 cup liquid honey
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
Melt all of the ingredients together on the stovetop or in the microwave (my version). Serve warm!
