Description

The best salted caramel sauce! Perfect on pancakes or over ice cream, there are endless ways to enjoy this easy homemade salted caramel sauce!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream*
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/41 1/4 tsp sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Combine the sugar and water until thoroughly mixed in a medium sized saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Without stirring, allow the mixture to simmer for about 12-15 minutes, or until it has turned a deep amber hue.
  3. While the sugar and water is simmering, place the heavy cream in a small saucepan over low heat and allow to warm. Do not allow the cream to boil.
  4. When the sugar and water mixture has turned into a deep amber hue, turn the heat to low and slowly whisk in the warm cream.
  5. Allow the sauce to simmer on low for a couple of minutes, then remove from heat and stir in the butter, vanilla and salt, to taste. Start with 3/4 tsp and add more as necessary.
  6. Serve the sauce warm, or allow to cool and place into a glass jar. Sealed sauce will keep at room temperature for 3 days and in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

*I use 35% whipping cream; I would not recommend using half and half or anything much less than 35% milk fat.
