5-Minute Caramel Sauce


This incredibly rich, gooey and delicious caramel sauce is ready in minutes thanks to the microwave oven! Use this easy caramel sauce as a topping in all of your favorite recipes like homemade lattes, ice cream, scones, pancakes and crêpes, and more.


1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup dark brown or light brown sugar, lightly packed (fresh, soft brown sugar works best)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon LorAnn Madagascar Vanilla Bean Paste or LorAnn Madagascar Vanilla Extract
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon LorAnn Bourbon Super-Strength Flavor (optional)


1 Place butter in a 4-cup microwave-safe glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex) and heat on high until butter is melted.

2. To the melted butter, add the brown sugar and heavy cream and whisk until smooth.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir.  Heat on high for 2 to 3 minutes more (mixture will boil vigorously). The sauce may seem thin, but will thicken as it cools.

3. Stir in the salt, vanilla, and bourbon flavor (if using). Cool slightly and pour into clean jars with lids.

4. To serve, microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until warm and pourable.

For a change of taste, try using other LorAnn Super-Strength flavors such as Butter Rum or Orange Brandy (Grand Marnier flavor)

Store in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
