Brooke's Five Minute Caramel Sauce




  1. Melt your butter in a microwave-safe bowl or jug.
  2. Add in the sweetener, molasses, and cream. Stir well. 
  3. Microwave on high for 2 mins. 
  4. Stir and microwave on high for another 2 mins. It will be bubbly and be a caramel colour. 
  5. Stir in the vanilla and salt. 

As it cools it will thicken.


Brooke's Note * If you plan to use it straight away, you are done.

I have found, though, if I plan to keep it in the fridge and use it later, it needs some xanthan gum to stop it from separating. After step 6 sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of XG from a salt shaker and whisk the sauce like crazy until it is dissolved. This will stop it from separating later in the fridge. When you are ready to use it just warm it for 10 seconds in the microwave to reach a pourable consistency.
