Caramel Sauce

Keep small amounts of this sauce in the freezer to warm up any time. Enjoy this delicious sauce with cake, ice cream, or bread pudding.


about 1 1/4 cups


1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


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 slightly thickened. Serve warm or cool. Add a little more cream before serving if it's too thick.
