Caramel sauce should NOT be complicated- but after tirelessly burning sugar or running out to purchase corn syrup (who has this on hand?!) only for the recipe to fail, I finally found THIS holy grain caramel sauce. Easy to customize for any occasion, dessert or taste. Plus, it only takes a few minutes and always comes out PERFECT!

Course: Dessert
Servings: 1 cup
Time: 5 minutes
Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional- OR any other variation you prefer, see notes)


  1. Combine brown sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract.

  3. Let cool slightly or serve immediately


Caramel Sauce Variations

Salted Caramel: A little coarse kosher salt is added for a more nuanced sauce. Taste, and add more salt if desired.

Vanilla Caramel Sauce: This caramel sauce is made with brown sugar, butter, and milk, with a touch of vanilla extract to enhance the flavor

Coffee Caramel Sauce: Stir 1 teaspoon of instant espresso powder into the cream and mix until dissolved. Proceed with your basic caramel recipe and add the espresso cream to make the sauce.
