First of all, let’s dream together. Imagine having a homemade sauce in your fridge that you could use every time you have brownies, pancakes, muesli, fruit, coffee, yoghurt, bread, milk, muffins, cookies…or that you could simply eat with a spoon!

This sauce exists and it is called…Caramel Sauce!

As you can see, I am really excited about this recipe.
After looking at all the pictures below you will understand why I have made this sauce so many times.
It goes well with everything!

 

1. Pancakes with caramel sauce

Pancakes, caramel sauce and dried fruit. A great way to start the day!

 

I am an early bird and I love making breakfast in the morning before everyone else gets up. It is a way of waking up slowly and starting the day with great energy. I don’t have time to cook pancakes everyday but I definitely catch up at the weekend!

By the way, it is a great recipe for brunch too. You can make them savoury or sweet, you choose!

2. Caramel Macchiato

You can also add this sauce to your coffee and make your own caramel macchiato. You can also add some ice cubes in the summer and make iced caramel macchiato! Some of you might prefer having some chocolate syrup instead of caramel sauce. I have written the recipe for you: https://thebrown-e.com/blog-chocolate-syrup-recipe/

3. On top of oats and yoghurt

If you prefer having some yoghurt and fruit, you can also throw some in there!

It makes it more decandent and yummy. The sweet taste of the caramel with the acidic touch of the fresh blueberries is definitely a great combination.

You can replace the blueberries by any fruit or nut of your choice. I wonder how many different bowls I can make in a year…

 

 

4. On top of oats and milk

When I have no yoghurt left, I usually have oats with nuts or fruit and any kind of milk there is in the fridge: almond, rice, coconut… and some caramel on top! You can also prepare it the day before and let it set in the fridge.

Another advantage of this breakfast idea is that you can bring it everywhere you go: these containers are great for picnics!

 

Today, I have mixed some oats with coconut powder, hazelnuts, caramel and some almond milk.

Great way to start the day! And it has literally taken me 5 minutes to make it.

In a nutshell, you are 15 minutes away from caramel heaven. You can start thinking what you are going to have your sauce with!

Caramel sauce

Quick, easy and very satisfying recipe. 

Four or five ingredients (you choose) depending on what you want as caramel sauce, sweet or salted. 

It goes well with every dessert and you can also have it alone, with a spoon!

Ingredients

  • 40 ml water
  • 125 g granulated sugar
  • 100 ml cream
  • 30 g butter
  • a pinch salt (not mandatory) (keep it there if you want to make salted caramel sauce)

Instructions

  1. Find a saucepan and a wooden spoon. I have also seen people using frying pans and kitchen whips and it works for them. Important thing to say before starting this recipe: wear long sleeves and be careful when you stir. It might seem like the weirdest thing to say, but getting burnt with caramel is one of the worst things that can happen to you in the kitchen.

  2. Pour the water in the saucepan (it should not be too small or it would get quite difficult at the end, when the sauce becomes a hot bubble party!)

  3. Heat both ingredients over medium heat. Stir non stop until some bubbles come up on the surface!

  4. Increase the heat and make it boil (you can stop stirring it now but don't go too far). The color will get a bit darker after some minutes (4 to 5 minutes).

  5. Remove it from the fire. Add the cream and stir carefully (this is the part that requires your attention the most...)

  6. Add the butter and continue stirring. Voilà! You have just made homemade caramel sauce!

  7. Dance to celebrate! Let it cool down. Store it in the fridge (you can keep it for a month) but I doubt that you will be able to keep it for so long...

 

Do you have some cream left?
