That color, I mean, look at it! It’s liquid gold! Gold that could drink straight of the jar! Hehehe!! You know, when I was shooting it a couple of days ago, the sunlight and the play of shadows in my make shift studio in my home somehow enhanced the golden hue, I didn’t even have to spend much time editing them! That’s always a plus, right?!

Also, pro tip – if want to make it into a Salted Caramel Sauce, you’ll simply need to add about 1 teaspoon of salt to this recipe! Voila! 

So let’s make ourselves some really delicious caramel sauce 🙂

Use a large sauce pan because when the mixture boils and bubbles, it’s safer to have all that extra room in the pan to allow the sauce to expand.

To make it, combine sugar with water in a pan. Whisk them together on medium heat.

Then, let them boil away on gentle heat until the mixture turns light golden in color.

My mixture took about 6 minutes to turn golden on low heat. Be careful, you are working with hot sugar.

Let the mixture boil on low heat for another 2-3 minutes so that it takes up a deeper, perfect amber color.

Be extra careful around this step, it takes just about 10 seconds for this mixture to go from amber to a burnt, sticky mass.

So keep an eye. Incase, if does happen that the mixture sticks to the base and burns, start over!

Once the color has turned amber, turn off the heat, Whisk in the vanilla extract and the cream . (salt too, incase you are making salted caramel sauce).

Continue to whisk gently until the sauce is smooth and silky.

That’s done. Let the sauce cool completely before storing it in a dry and clean glass jar.

This sauce stays fresh in the refrigerator for over 2-3 months.

A delicious Caramel Sauce that is so buttery, thick, rich and so addictive! The only recipe you'll be needing to make a jarful of this liquid gold!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar (I've used castor sugar)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or whipping cream
  • 3/4 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt (optional, to be added if making salted caramel sauce)

Instructions

  1. Use a large sauce pan because when the mixture boils and bubbles, it's safer to have all that extra room in the pan to allow the sauce to expand.

  3. Then, let them boil away on gentle heat until the mixture turns light golden in color.

Notes

Use a large, deep pan. The sauce will bubble and expand, hence a large, deep pan is safer. Remember you are working with boiling sugar so stay safe and have your kids/ family members away from the hot pan. Maintain a low heat to ensure the sugar doesn't burn.
