Drizzle this golden caramel sauce over pound cake or ice cream for added deliciousness.


How to Make It

Combine sugar and water in a large heavy saucepan; cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high, and boil gently, without stirring, until syrup turns a deep amber color, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush and swirling pan (about 8 minutes). (Swirling the pan, instead of stirring, promotes more even cooking.) Gradually add cream (sauce will bubble vigorously). Add butter; stir gently until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.

I have made this several times and it is a hit, so delicious. I have some in the fridge now, made to drizzle over warm apple pie. We also make popcorn and drizzle some on it to make a yummy, messy, caramel popcorn!

I liked how this recipe came out very much. It was a little bit buttery in my opinion, but still very good. The taste is great, and it is definitely something to make to impress.

Perfection! I followed the recipe to the "T" and the sauce was just what I wanted. It thickens up nicely and stays soft. Thanks so much!

I made this recipe, and added a generous pinch of sea salt at the end. It is the best tasting and textured caramel sauce I've ever made! I used it on homemade ice cream sandwiches and it doesn't get rock hard in the freezer. Love it.
