Buttermilk Caramel Sauce

Print Friendly

1/2 c. butter

3/4 c. buttermilk

1 1/2 c. granulated sugar

2 T. corn syrup

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. vanilla

Combine butter, buttermilk, sugar, corn syrup and baking soda in large cooking pot.  (it will boil over if pot is too small).  Bring ingredients to a boil over medium heat, then reduce temp to a simmer.  Cook, stirring frequently for 7-9 minutes.  It is done when the caramel sauce is a golden brown.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

The caramel will look like this when you need to pull if off the heat:

But will quickly look like this after the addition of vanilla and the bubbles subside with stirring:

Tips:  We use this as a sauce on brownies and flourless chocolate cake and as a dip for apples.
