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.


How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 2

To Reheat: Microwave in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 10 to 15 seconds or just until warm; stir until smooth.

This was an amazing sauce! I made it to go with the pancakes, but as the other reviewer said, I will be using this for other things, too!! Just a note, there's a lot leftover from the pancakes.

Made this caramel sauce to go with the pancakes and it was superb! I've made quite a bit of caramel sauce lately (multiple methods) and this is, hands down, the easiest way to make a good, flavorful sauce. I plan on making this sauce again for use not only with the pancakes but also over ice cream, you name it...anything that needs caramel sauce!
