Jump to Recipe

I still remember the idea of making Caramel or Caramel Sauce scared me terribly. I think it was because someone I greatly looked up to had told me that homemade caramel was very difficult, complicated, and at times, even dangerous to make.

For many years, therefore, I tried my best to avoid making it, and then finally when I did gather enough guts to make it, the caramel sauce ended up like a mass of burnt sugar and filled my house with the smell of burnt sugar and my eyes with tears.

It took me another few years before I attempted making this again. This time I pushed away all my fears and voilà! I got a beautiful, thick caramel sauce.

And so here I am today, sharing with you the easiest caramel sauce recipe.
