Caramel Sauce... I searched for a "foolproof" caramel sauce. I finally came upon a good one ...one that makes sense to me! This involves you covering the pan so that there will be condensation which in turn "brushes the sugar crystals on the sides of the pan" Really, all it does is to mimic the process that I didn't want to deal with...so, I think this will do for me! For this recipe, I halved the ingredients and forgot to heat the cream and it still came out. So, in my book this is a great recipe. Happy to share it with you!
"I've never made a caramel sauce before and this was incredibly easy and delicious! I've been using it in my iced coffee and it's just like Starbucks. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. "
Place the sugar and water in a medium, heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, swirling occasionally I just swirl the pot and do not use any spatula or wooden spoon. Cover the pan, raise heat to medium-high, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the liquid gives off large, thick bubbles. You will notice some condensation. Remove the cover and cook, swirling the syrup, until it turns golden brown. Be careful so as not to over brown or burn. Keep an eye on it ...it shouldn't take too long. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the butter with a wooden spoon. Add the cream, stirring constantly, then add the vanilla or any flavoring you want. I used Irish cream to make it my own! Return the pan to low heat and stir constantly until any lumps have melted and the syrup is smooth. Serve warm over ice cream or cake, or pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week. ~adapted from CDKITCHEN.COM~
luciavelasco7 6m agoThis is a fantastic recipe and what a great flavor. This sauce couldn't be easier to make! Rich, creamy and fantastic. I used it as a topping for home made ice cream but can't wait to try it on a warm apple pie. I was nervous as I've never made any kind of candy or candy type sauce. You just have to follow the instructions and that's it, really easy to make. Once you try this recipe you will see that you won't buy caramel sauce from your local store again.
