Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce

Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce

This is a really easy sauce to make and it goes with pies, on sundays, and much more.  It is a sweeter caramel sauce than I normally make.  Usually I make a fleur de sel caramel but that is a little more difficult to make than this one which is pretty much, throw all the ingredients except of vanilla in a small pot and cook.

Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 TB butter
  • 1/8 tsp (I prefer fleur de sel or sea salt)
  • 1 TB vanilla extract

Mix brown sugar, heavy cream, butter and salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Let mixture cooking, whisking gently for 9-10 minutes until the mixture thickens. Add vanilla extra and cook for 1 more minute. Mixture will thicken more. Turn off heat and cool caramel mixture. Serve when cool or you can store in refrigerator for a few days until ready to use.

  1. this looks lovely & too easy to believe! will attempt to make this sinful delight soon but may I ask, does this sauce when kept in jars harden once it is cool like hard caramel or will it keep its thick ooze? thank you!

    1. caramel sauce is pretty easy to make. This one doesn’t really harden up too much but if it gets thicker than I like, I just put the jar in a cup of hot water or put it in the microwave for 20 seconds.

  2. I’m not a baker but definitely intend on attempting this!!! Curious, how long will the caramel sauce keep in the refrigerator?

  3. I didn’t have the exact measurements because I was making this with leftovers from another recipe and it still worked like a dream.

    1. Great to hear. It is the thing I love about making caramel sauce. Once you get the basics down, it is really easy to make in a pinch 🙂

  4. Today, I do not have heavy cream (otherwise, I would just whip some up, for this apple cake) can I use regular milk?

  5. I have made this recipe several times and have never been disappointed. I use it for custard and all kinds of desserts as well as baked ham. It will keep forever in a mason jar. Just warm it up in hot water or a few seconds in the microwave. Enjoy!
