What to serve with Caramel Cake Pancakes? Why Caramel Syrup, of course! Our recipe is simple--only 4 ingredients--and is also great over ice cream or wherever Caramel Syrup is needed. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat; add sugar and lemon juice, and cook, stirring constantly, 5 to 6 minutes or until mixture turns a caramel color. Gradually add whipping cream, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.
