Keep small amounts of this sauce in the freezer to warm up anytime. Enjoy this delicious sauce with cake, ice cream, or bread pudding. This old-fashioned caramel sauce is made with sugar, water, and cream. A little vanilla gives the sauce extra flavor.
- 1 cup sugar (granulated)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Steps to Make It
Put the sugar and water in a heavy saucepan over low heat.
Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar turns a medium golden brown color, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Carefully and slowly add the cream and vanilla, using a long-handled wooden spoon to stir. Simmer until the caramel dissolves and blends into the cream, about 2 minutes.
The sauce will be smooth and slightly thickened. Serve warm or cool.
- Add a little more cream before serving if it's too thick.
